Remarks & Notes 
Cambria & Indiana RR coal cars are in the consist of a train rolling by on the main. C&I was nowhere near Indiana, the state, but revenues per mile of track for the small RR were the greatest of any in the U.S. during the 30s and 40s, thanks to coal. The train shed of the Altoona depot is in the background and the roof of the station, with the three round-headed windows, is showing behind it. Perhaps most interesting is the massive stack of freight car truck side frames and what appear to be bolsters (the cross piece that connects the side frames and supports the car), in the foreground.

There are times when many engines, cars or cabooses are concentrated in a location. Such sites are for storage, economic reasons, active power needs or for rebuilding. For others, wear and tear have brought their usefulness to and end.
