Re: Kline & Culotta Freight car book
Here is some more information about the book. The photos were taken in
1946-48. The introduction is an overview of freight car history from
1898 to 1947 and briefly describes traffic in the Harrisburg, PA area
where most of the photos were taken. The introduction is followed by
eight chapters on box cars, reefers, stock cars, hoppers, covered
hoppers, gondolas, flat cars and tank cars. The photos in each chapter
are arranged chronologically to illustrate freight car design history.
There are photos of most major US freight car designs and of cars owned
by 102 railroads and private car lines.
