A beautiful afternoon in Lima, OH.  Pretty sure this is the ex PRR / B&O crossing.  I think the train was solid company service ballast cars.

Those are PRR company service wheel cars. Note they are light colored (probably still gray) with black lettering.

Yes of course.  I see it now.  Should have thought of that.  Thanks.
