Re: rock island wreck photo

Interesting comments about the boxcars and the door on the near car. I take it Andy that when you say that the door dates the construction to 1946, that means 1946 or later? Or were those doors in production so briefly that they were only used on cars delivered in 1946?

Meanwhile, too bad the tank car isn't more identifiable?

Just noticed an interesting photo on e-bay this evening - it shows a train wreck with a Rock Island boxcar and an insulated tank car - in colour. Curios to know if these cars can be identified more specifically (car numbers aren't visible on the boxcar; sort of visible on the tank). Its auction number 280569580698.
