Oh man, yea. There are some terrific shots in that group. There is one shot that shows a yellow OB box car with the "jar" painted on the door. I'm not sure what it was called but, I'm sure that type car has been talked about on this site.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
There are some great shots for scenery help.

Somebody may have already posted this, but there is a series of 40-odd *color* pictures on Google/LIFE titled: "Trainscapes 1950: View from a train window." A number of RELEVANT frieght shippers are featured, as well a steam era fright car or two.
One in particular was this Koppers Coke retail facility. Who would buy coke on a retail scale?
