An interesting paint-out section about the reporting marks.

    Must have been great climbing those wood end ladders in rain or snow.

There is a BCR&N boxcar under that bridge, with the outline of the RI shield, which reads Rock Island System. The Burlington Cedar Rapids & Northern ceased to exist in June of 1903, when it was purchased by the Rock Island. The shield is brighter than the reporting marks, suggesting it was painted on an existing paint scheme soon after the takeover. If the photo dates from 1904, the shield is perhaps only few months old.
