And they can put the cars on open platform equipment. Apparently no one throws rocks there. Must be nice.

Ran across an old photo my dad must have took.  No idea on date or location.

Great photo Wes.

The other day I had the good fortune to be walking between buildings and captured this shot with my cell phone - probably never to be repeated:



In the foreground is a PCC car stripped to the bare essentials and awaiting restoration for the city of El Paso.

In the right background is a G&W engine that was just repainted (no repairs by us, paint only) and lettered for their Goodrich & Exeter line.  In the middle is a Montreal F59PH, rebuilt and painted by us,  that I've shown here recently.  To the left rear is a B&P locomotive coming onto Brookville property to retrieve both locomotives for customer delivery.
