Nice photo! The CB&Q car looks pretty new.

 

BTW, I see 8-28 in the lower left corner under the sill at the door. That might be the photo month/year.

CB&Q 36' Stock Car Class SM18-A (Series 56200-56699) was built in 1928 by CB&Q Galesburg. The lettering on the car looks fairly new in the photo, so it maybe not long after it was built.

CB&Q 56315 was built by the Burlington at its Galesburg shops in 1926-27, part of class SM-18A group numbered 56200-56699. They were constructed using National Dump centre sills from retired GA-12 and GE-2 gondolas which had been built in 1914. Some were later fitted with an upper deck, signified by the letter “D” above the road number.

Thanks for posting. Looks like the steel frame is newly painted without painting the slats. Never seen that.

The "A" on the stock yard building in the background suggests the photo is cropped from a NP Joint Facilities Book.  The date of 8-28 in the lower right corner is consistent with the period the books were prepared.  I believe there may be a copy of the volume covering the Billings joint facilities at the railway museum in Duluth.  The facility would have been documented if it was owned by the NP but shared under a joint facilities agreement with the CB&Q and/or GN.

I don't believe the Jt. Fac. volumes at Pacific Northwest Railway Archive include Billings.

Does anybody else think 70-ton trucks under NP 81745 sounds a bit odd? 40-ton trucks would be fine for a stock car. Is this a misprint, or would there be a reason for such heavy trucks under such a light car?

Yours Aye,

Who knows, worn out trucks, had a bunch of 70 ton trucks in stock, had a customer taking about raising elephants.

I will see what the AFE file says when I scan it in a couple of months.
