Photos: Wabash Decatur Yards

This is a link to forty-five photos of the Wabash yards from the files of the Decatur Herald-Review:

https://herald-review.com/gallery/history/photos-wabash-yards/collection_4a3092b0-b124-5ed7-be01-e860c79d42d4.html

Mostly long shots. Some photos are dated and some show freight cars with fair detail.

Photo #15 appears to show a car with a copper plate load.

Photo #21 shows a billboard Schlitz car but it does not appear to be a reefer.

That is a tall car in photo 10 in the center or the cars are short on either side.  Might be the same car in photo 43.

Neat find!

Paul, mine opened just fine using Windows 10. Bob, there are some great yard photos, especially the first one with the proposed new track switch aiming into the shanty. Probably never really needed and it wasn’t worth the time to remove it. Since it cost a lot of money to build and remove track, when plans change, the track stays in place until it is absolutely needed to be removed. Thanks for sharing Bob, Dave Bayless

It probably has to do with site access permissions beyond the US or North America.

easily solved by use of a VPN connection to the USA. i wrote a lot of the routing
code for the internet - trust me, there are a million ways to get around these clumsy
blocks. it was designed to withstand the inevitable interference and censorship from
"authorities"

I was able to see the steam here car bearing the beer that made Milwaukee famous slogan from the city that made the recipe.

Beer didn't need icing, so beer cars were usually ARA class RB, Refrigerator, Bunkerless. Eventually the brewers came to the realization that putting their logo on the car was akin to posting a COME STEAL ME sign.

The cars were insulated (by the standard of the time) and ice blocks were inside the car.

Guys, scroll around this website, there  are lots of great photos on all kinds of RR  subjects, and various local roads.   A really great find!  Bill Woelfel

Anheuser Busch came to that conclusion, their name did not appear on any cars in the immediate post-prohibition period, eventually even changing their beer bottle green color on the St' Louis Refrigerator line cars. But it seems like everyone else, except maybe Coors, big and small, tried to plaster their names on as many cars as possible during the 1934-1937 period, when the ICC rules went into effect. Miller even put their logo on some cars in the 60s when the interpretation was relaxed.
