Re: End Door Boxcar & Fire Engine

The location of this photo is very likely Elmira, NY, which was home to both American LaFrance and Ward LaFrance, both makers of fire trucks.  The American LaFrance plant was large and sat opposite the junction of the PRR's Elmira Branch and the Erie's main line, at the north end of the PRR's Southport Yard complex.  There was a spur with a loading ramp off the PRR in an adjacent neighborhood for loading fire engines from American LaFrance into PRR boxcars, including the X30.
