Re: Question: When Did Scrap Metal Bailers Come Into General Use?

Mike Clements

There is a Jim Shaughnessey photo in the Carstens Lehigh & New England softcover of a LV gon carrying a load of cube shaped scrap bales out of Maybrook, NY. It is unfortunately undated, but would be pre-1961 since that is when L&NE gave up the ghost. I would guess late 1950s based on the weathering on the LNE FAs. The reweigh date looks like 1954 or 1956 but is really hard to read.
