Re: LRX Image...


Glad you posted this image, Matt. I have a print of it, too.

The DL&W added truss rods to some of this batch of reefers to stiffen the sills, and this is clearly seen in the photo. In this era, many of these cars were yellow but some were still orange, which is tough to tell in this image.

A few days ago, a thread discussed the DL&W's "LRX" reporting marks. Took me some time, but I just got an image of LRX 7218 scanned, and posted to my website. I would have attempted to load it to my photo folder on STMFC, but it could take months (if not longer) to get that image approved! ;>)

This was given to me by Chuck Yungkurth, shows LRX 7218 in December of 1947. Shot was probably taken in the Binghamton, NY or Scranton PA area, and might be the work of the late Clarence Tharp. Here's a link for those interested.
