Looks like Russia is getting some Black & Decker tools. I wonder if the Russians were talked into buying the extended warranties?

The 1100 series cars were built by the Baltimore Car and Foundry Co. in 1913 at a cost of $1,234.30 each and had a capacity of 40 tons.

These cars had new steel ends applied in 1928 and 1929 and were equipped with steel side frame trucks in 1936 and 1937.
