Photo: Freight Car Under Construction

A circa 1920 photo from the Historic Pittsburgh website:

Scroll on the photo to enlarge it.

Description: "The Pitcairn Yards shops could not only repair and refurbish railroad rolling stock, but the skilled workmen could also build complete cars in the carpentry shops. This picture shows a construction crew doing just that."

Looks to me like this is a new wood superstructure on an existing underframe.
