Neat photo.  Mike shot this in Altoona, PA in September 1978.

Nice angle. What treasures could have been found if I only paid more attention during my 4 years in Central PA.

Given the date of the shot, Conrail era, I'm thinking these have been retired and are awaiting disposal.  Thanks for posting.

Imagine all the places these cars have been during their service years ! Here is another shot from East Altoona that I took on 4/20/80. Most of the Box Cars are Class X53  RBL 50 footers. Of particular note is Pennsylvania 21250 (built 12-59 PRR) that is sublettered for the Lehigh Valley.

Thanks so much for posting these treasures! The Pennsy is my favorite. Keep these coming!
