    You have stumbled across the "mother lode!" The Barriger collection has already been cited on this forum (and on other rail-line-specific groups). This set for the AT&N displays welcome improvement over earlier photocopy releases from the collection.
    1. The annotation is clear about location and scene.
    2. Annotation for this set includes a "serial number."
    3. Photos are generally "square" on the screen (rather than at an angle).
    The collection deserves this kind of minimum standard of display; here is a hope it is continued and "retrofitted" to the items previously posted.

    Very nice, it must have been quite the time, like the hyrail. Noticed the ties, for the most part square.
