The first thing on the list would be Weirton Steel, and followed by brick,china,porcelain and clay items, ending at Koppers Butane Industrial track. [ installed during the Korean conflict]
These are located on the New Cumberland Branch, which went NE from Weirton Jct.
Now see if you can trace possible receivers of these items in Alameda, and the puzzle gets smaller.

Subject: [STMFC] M&StL 50 fters

Saturday I bought photos of M&StL 2900 and 2902 from Joe Collias. These are PS1 50' box cars with 8' doors and DF loaders blt in 59. The photos were taken at Alameda CA in 1960. The cars are stenciled: WHEN EMPTY RETURN TO PRR WEIRTON W VA. Does anyone know what Weirton had that Alameda might have wanted??
