Hi List Members,
 
An interesting array of cars at the Lehigh Portland Cement Company, Mitchell, Indiana 1920s
 
From left to right, I see...
 
TP&W box
NKP auto box
SOU hopper
D&H box
CH&D box
LPCX hoppers (2 of them)
SOO box
ACL ventilated box
Possibly another boxcar in the shadows beyond
 
 
Enjoy!

The NKP box still has its original NEW weight stencil.

The two LPCX hoppers are the channel-side design that AC&F developed circa 1905 and built in quantity for the next few years. Southern received several thousand, and the longest-lasting were the Huntington & Broad Top Mountain cars.
