Please correct the data to read “Northern District”. I don’t think the Eastern District even existed when this photo was taken. I would guess it dates back to the late 1940’s.
It’s a photo that Bill Middleton shot. I’ll look up the date and data as soon as i can. Steve Crise
Some kind of trick photo? The boxcar body does not appear to be sitting on it’s own trucks, with the front axle almost tucked under the box motor!
