I'm continuing to enjoy the postings of photos from Life with many good finds. This one is a 1946 shot of a Rock Island train somewhere in the USofA. I'm a bit curious to know if those might be Dominion/Fowler box cars - to my eye they appear to be a similar design, but I can't see reporting marks. http://images.google.com/hosted/life/f?q=Locomotives+source:life&;prev=/images%3Fq%3DLocomotives%2Bsource:life%26start%3D18%26ndsp%3D18%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DN&imgurl=499ba83230c2fb3c

Kind of makes me wonder how many of these cars are identifiable.....? Reminds me of some of the most enjoyable pages on the Steam Era Freight cars web page.....
