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.

This is a gold star photo.

Look at the color variations on those PFE reefers! The wood reefer with
the SP hearald had to be yellow. There's another PFE reefer is the next
