    one of the first all steel box cars mass produced in the united states, im thinking early 30s on this one

    this car was used to carry melted steel by rail....sorry, no date
    [img]http://boogiehands.freeservers.com/images/railcar.jpg'>
    a car used by the rail company to reach remote parts of the rail that couldnt be accessed by road....im thinking 1930s-40s

    a wooden snow plow used during the heavier snows in the north, the plow is slanted all to the right in order to keep snow of the adjacent tracks....

    during the transition from the older, smaller cars to a larger scaled car this was used to measure for clearance in tunnels....if the metal structure (to the left) passed through the tunnel then it was suitable for the clearance of the newer, larger cars

    Lovin it I wish all of them were working. I got to see some B&O's running when I was younger. The line was right behind my mom's house and I used to sit there and watch them all the time. Good Times
