Remarks & Notes 
Four Pittsburg & Shawmut SW9s bring a long train of empties to the loader at Dora, Pennsylvania. The 50-ton hoppers in this train were outlawed from interchange, either due to age, friction-bearing trucks, or both. The coal would be loaded at Dora, and then taken by the Brookville turn to its turning point at Mahoning. A crew from Kittanning would then take the coal to its unloading point, which I have to think was a barge loading facility on the Allegheny River.

The front of the train is dark. This is just what makes the picture so good.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
