Re: Photo: Lehigh Valley Double-Sheathed Boxcar 85918 (1928)

Of equal interest to those building yards and sidings are the different types of track bumpers:
  • the two in front with manufactured cast steel/iron parts and apparently a pyramidal style concrete rear support structure
  • the three in back, made of wood, only two of which are upright, with the second one tilted to one side, and that third one completely tipped over.
And it seems that maybe the boxcar right against the building may have a simple pile of dirt as a "stopper".

Great photo.  Thanks!!
