Remarks & Notes 
There are few freight cars that are more distinctive than the B&O’s “wagontop” box cars. Conceived out of the necessity to replace older double-sheathed boxcars with steel ones, the class M15K wagontops, were constructed at Mount Clare with new fabricated steel bodies on the older double-sheathed cars’ underframes. Although I remember seeing them in trains as a kid, the wagontops had pretty much disappeared from revenue service before my photography days. Here is former B&O 375311, white-lined and in storage service, sits within the Cumberland shops complex.

All of Tom Farence's pictures with stories. These are too incredible not to put in an album. Will include other's photos if they have a write up to go with.

A much needed album given that there is no "category" to identify these pictures
