Hi Bob, Roger, and List Members,

I can make out the letters "PITTS" - which naturally makes be think PITTSBURGH is in the road name. Miami Cycle and Manufacturing Company was in Middletown OH, so if we figure the load originated there then that limits the railroads it could have been.

Some possibilities...





I'm sure there are others I am overlooking

The fisbelly underframe design looks a little unique - surely someone knows who has baggage cars with this underframe construction type other than AT&SF

You just never know where you will find railroad stuff on the Internet.

I am surprised this load wasn’t shipped in a boxcar.
