We also see P&R 82457, a twin hopper. These cars had channel side construction, series 81500-85499 built 1906-1907. I think these were known as class HTd on the Philadelphia & Reading

Very cool shot of a relative rarity:  a NH straight-sill shorty in service in the 1920s, but before the rebuilding that began in 1926 (note the wood roof).

Even rarer is the B&M 1.5 door shorty XA in the background (#12219).  There were 200 such cars built in 1910, but this is the first photo that I have seen.

Thanks Bob!
