This photo can be enlarged quite a bit.

The car is lettered Pennsylvania Lines and the car initials are PL.

Partial views of other cars appear.

Can anyone make out the placard on the NYC gondola?

Nice photo, Bob! Thanks for sharing. The placard on the NYC gondola looks like it reads MANIFEST.

 

The PL GS looks like it has a load of coupler drawbar castings. Notice this gondola is so weathered that the weigh data under the reporting marks is gone. The road name and car number seem to have had some chalk applied.

Very interesting old side-dump car in the background.
Anyone have any information on that?
