    Karl, I suspect they're cleaning up the cast-in holes for rivets to connect sections of iron pipe. The photo was from a iron pipe works in SW Pennsylvania. (P&MR went into the Montour RR.)

    There ought to be a name for this....

    A lot of people use the term "foobee" for a car with no actual prototype.

    In my case, I produced a foobee because I really liked the Westerfield inside stake drop floor gondolas, and I also liked Art Griffin's Pittsburgh and Moon Run decal set (those belong to an all steel car.)



    Today I saw the Pittsburgh & Moon Run lettering on an inside stake wood gon!!!



    Turns out all I needed to do was put the numbers on the other end and rearrange them a bit.

    So what should we call a "foobee" that turns out to actually be prototypical?
