Mun-Roe was Re: [EXT] Re: [RealSTMFC] Photo: Reefers At A Blast Furnace (Circa 1925)

Jim Ogden
 

It’s MUN-roe only inside the city limits but if you go to Bastrop or Rayville (BAA strup, RAY-vul) we pronounce it Mun-ROE. For the record, I am from Mer Rouge (mur-ROUGE thirty miles north. My rule is to come across like a native, pronounce it wrong.

Monroe is on the old MoPac and IC. Shorelines were the A&LM plus logging and industrial switching at paper mills or logging operations.

Eric,

I am not real familiar with the industries in South Bend; but I do know there was an ARMCO plant there.  My guess is that the siding was metal; but could have been more of an industrial or agricultural type, rather than housing.

Names and proper pronunciation fascinate me to no end. For instance there is the Willamette River, my Mom was certain that I was not saying it right, but a disinterested third party confirmed that I was was right, it's Will Lamb It - Damn It! <VBG>

My sincere apologies to anyone offended.

People likewise are in a state of disbelief when I tell them I've been from Boring, Oregon to Remote, Oregon via Drain and Zigzag. (actually I haven't been to Zigzag just yet), but I've been on either side of it.

They are a pressed steel archbar truck; fairly commonly used on Pressed Steel Car's early production, including Reading's first PSC hoppers. Reading took a liking to the design and used it on several later orders through the mid-Teens.

Charlotte (pronounce Shar-LOT, not SHAR-let) was served by the New York Central. While not a direct connection to the shops in East Rochester, given that the steel mill has been shut down for some 20 years by the time of the photo, it would make sense that the NYC was using it for storage.

I forgot to mention, I especially like the pole load on the flat car in the background along with "C&IM 6149 twin offset side hopper". One of the poles looks to have dangerously shifted while en route.

Scroll on the photo to enlarge it.

Anyone have an educated guess as to what is going on here?

The reefers all look the same and all look new. Is their location a coincidence or would there be some reason to place these cars at a blast furnace?
