Hi List Members,
 
I assume that the two stock cars at the left side of the image - Fort Worth & Denver 3072 and an unidentified AT&SF stock car - will be carrying their share of steel wheels shortly.

What a great photo loaded with details. It looks like an expansion or another industry is rising in the background.

There are several in this series including shots of early ATSF stock cars being used to haul cast wheels.

I did a fairly cursory search to find where Griffin Wheel Denver was located, and didn't come up with an answer.  There is a three-rail track in the foreground.

What a great name for a RR.   I wonder who absorbed the CRI&T.

Never mind .... just realized who the railroad became.  Lou Adler

Griffin Wheel was located on the south side of Denver on the C&S west side line at W. Evans Ave and S. Osage St.

So the three-rail track in the photo might be the former South Park main line.  These views are looking northwest.
