    SLSF 85023 with a load of 36" cast iron pipe destined for Lincoln, NE. Photo from a United States Pipe and Foundry brochure from 1931.

    David - Terrific pic! Thanks for posting it.

    Shows the USRA composite gon in its post 1931 red oxide color scheme, with no "LINES" in the coonskin herald. Unusual lettering font (RR Roman?) used for the FRISCO in the herald. Good views of the Andrews trucks, which stayed on most of these cars for their entire service life.
