Hi Andy and List Members,
 
Thanks Andy for pointing us to this great shot.
 
I did a bit of sleuthing... the two cars appear to be of identical construction, and according to my Dec 1930 ORER this means they are part of series ERIE 7208-7212, with a total of 5 cars. Between the two leftmost gentlemen obscuring the number one can see the digit "9". I think we can reasonably conclude the car nearest the camera is ERIE 7209.
