photo to analyze

Justin Turpin <birdbiz2003@...>

About a week ago there was quite a thread generated by the analysis of a photo on the Library of Congress American Memory photo site. Here is another photo worthy of analysis by the car i.d experts and can help with traffic analysis and layout construction:

page 576 of 1931 National Georaphic has a picture of the huge chemical products from corn plant and plant's railyard for the plant in Pekin Illinois which may still exist. I see ATSF Boxcars, a KCS Reefer or box car pre USRA type , several Side Truss Boxcars, a B & O gon, more than one type of hopper and several Crystal Line tank cars with good modeling details highly visible.
