The stencil on this car states it is to be returned to Santa Fe Springs, CA. I grew up not far from the Santa Fe depot inĀ at this location. It was a tiny structure surrounded by oil field and citrus groves. I've checked with local folks and no one can recall any large cattle ranching or meat processing facility near this location. Nor was there a cleanout facility at this location. So, the stencil instructions are somewhat of a mystery.
