Remarks & Notes 
The sound of couplers colliding together, whistle blasts, air compressors and steam locomotive exhaust chuffs, all but an auditory echo from some 50 years past. Here, a long abandoned hopper and box car serve as a time capsule preserving Mount Union's past. That is, so long as someone, or some group, remains in a position to guarantee protection of both the site and it's rolling stock for future generations.
