Duluth 1905

Take a look at that fleet of Armour reefers, Courtesy of Northern Pacific list. Is that a young Mike Brock playing in the yard? Bill Welsh, which Fruit Growers class did these Armour reefers become?

Here is a link to a fabulous shot of Duluth in 1905, with lots of NP
boxcars (including a 36-ft with the steel fishbelly sideframe), and a
variety of other cars, including a VERY swaybacked gondola!

I personally like the wood gon in the very left of the photo heaped with a load of coal (?) and sagging as if it is about to collapse.

Look at the loading dock on the side of the building
behind the reefers -- have you ever seen anything like
that? It slopes down to the ground, radially, and appears
to be made from wood planks. Bizarre!

George Sellios should have modeled 1895-1905. It appears to
be exactly right for his structures.
