fallen flags site

Has anyone found steam era freight car at the fallen flags web site in
files besides Erie and the ACF?

In the Erie files any freight car credited to Dan Biernacki is "steam
era". EL was formed in 1960, the cutoff for this group. There are some
other STMFCs in the Erie folders too.

Dan rescued a lot of negatives in the Erie RR achive from a dumpster.

I've found a bunch scattered throughout the site - though a lot of them
are post-1960 photos of STMFCs.

Ed,

The Jim Sands photos, typically from Marshalltown IA in the late '60's
sometimes prove useful.

On the topic of Steam Era cars photographed in the 60's, anyone have any information regarding this one? (AAMX 2002) Here's the link:

There some scans of Paul Dunn photos in the B&O freight car section.
These are from the 1950's.

Bob,
CB&Q and Rock Island. Not a lot but enough. Most of the photos are from the outer edge of our time span.

There are very are one or two pre-1960 shots in the FF NP collection.

There is one really nice Alba Bloss color shot ca. late 1950s of NP

That is an awfully nice photo. Thanks for bringing it to our
attention.

When was that car built?
Does the apparently excess door track indicate the car originally had
double doors?
Is that an arched roof as opposed to peaked?

It is 57 deg. now and we expect high 70s this afternoon.
But remember, it is a dry heat.

Oops! My second question was answered right above. Guess I need to
pay more attention, at least that is what my wife says.
