Remarks & Notes 
Relic

This wooden Fruit Growers Express reefer and at least one companion were set off on an unused track in Conrail’s Enola Yard. I can’t determine for sure, but the car may have been built in 1926, and has outlived the ICC 50-year interchange rule in this 1977 view. It’s interesting to see a 1920’s car in the company of a Railbox and an 86-foot piggyback car. Other similar cars have been preserved, but as far as I can tell, this one went to the kindling pile.

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