Thanks to those who continue to provide photos of these cars.


I’d be very tempted to model the FINX car just for the reporting marks!!

A couple more pickle car photos that Phil Shuster sent me about fifteen years ago. Both were taken in 1961.

The first (FINX 203) was taken in Lakeview, Michigan, on the C&O's former Pere Marquette, near the center of the lower peninsula.

The second, a Squire Dingee car (SDX 119) was taken at the C&O yard in Saginaw. It is coupled to a double-sheathed USRA boxcar now in company service.
