I’d add the Mesta Machine Low Shear.  They rode on freight cars, after all  J

 

What a great 3-d-printed product (hint, hint).

Hi Bob,

 

Thanks for digging up this wonderful image!

 

The car PRR 559589 is a PRR class XL boxcar. The UNION LINES lettering limits the photo to the twenties or earlier.

With all due respect, I will spend a minute on the flat car - it appears to be PFW&CRW 931651, a PRR class FM flat. I like all the chalk marks on the car! I notice the inscription "11" over "28" under the CAPY stencil, this may indicate a reweigh date of 11-1928

 

There is also an additional PRR class XL boxcar and a PRR class GR gon to look at as well
