Re: That Shorpy freight shed photo...

There certainly is something for anyone interested in steam era freight cars. I am especially curious about ALTON car #17238. It appears to have had a recent shopping and has a radial roof, I think. I cannot determine whether the MKT car that has been the subject of so much discussion has "dirty" roof or a galvanized roof left unpainted. There is much more to discuss, but that's a start.

There is so much else to see in this photo, which IMHO deserves a thread of its own. I like the piecemeal replacement of the running boards on the Pennsy boxcar in the lower left of the photo.

There literally is something for every STMFC modeller in many of Delano's photos. What a treasure trove they are!
