The CB&Q and the FW&D stock cars shown in picture 20 don't look painted to me. There appear to be many knots showing in the wood. Plus in pix 14, there is a Pittsburgh and West Virginia coal gondola. I guess its going over Sherman Hill!

Guys -

Here are som nice photos from around Omaha in the 1924 to 1925 era.
The link was posted on the Railway Bull Shippers Yahoo group. I never
