A.C.& F. Photos at Barriger Library Collection
Posted by gmpullman on Saturday, June 10, 2017 9:23 PM

Hello Folks,

I frequently browse the John W. Barriger III collection at Flickr and I thought it was time to remind some folks that there have been several hundred additional photos posted in the A.C.F. Album:

For instance, construction of the Lackawanna 10-6 Pullman Tioughnioga.

Of particular interest is the Department of the Interior Helium car construction.

These are some of the best photos I have ever seen of this rather obscure car.

I just thought I'd pass the link along to anyone interested in seeing what's there.

The William Rapp station collection is worth a look, too!

I hope you find these photos helpful and enjoy browsing them as much as I do. Considerable gratitude is due the family of Mr. Barriger and Lewis for making these thousands of images available for our enjoyment.

Anyone want to scratch-build a freight car washer?

 

Regards, Ed
