The Pennsylvania Railroad was looking for a replacement for their ageing fleet of B60b baggage cars and built ten of these twin-door replacements. They classed them as Mail Storage cars. I believe only one was painted with the passenger stripes. The cars had steam and signal lines as well as marker brackets:

Almost a whole day since a post.  I'd better come up with something.

Here's Rocky again on a handsome old express reefer.

 

Got any Pullman passenger cars that say Pullman on them please.

I'll bet some GIs were a bit disappointed when they were promised a ride in a real Pullman car and found out these box cars were their 'golden charriots' for the next couple of days!

Sorry Ed, I don't have anything labelled PULLMAN in my collection of photographs.

Here are some concrete pipes on a flat car:

Please show me something else concrete.

The coaling tower in the background here is a concrete structure:

And a fine looking coaling tower along with the scene at that!

Gotta show the last Pullman cars that weren't able to be posted on Sunday after Imgur crashed Ed.  The Northern Pacific Loewy paint scheme, ...Beautiful!

Probably would have been cheating, as the lettering is rather small on these.

Intermountain is releasing the F7 A,B locomotives that I've been searching for 7 years.  Sure hope the paint matches MicroTrains.  Spendy but the pre-order is now concreteYes

 

And now back to our regularly scheduled program.

This application was Fast-n-Final that was applied about five years ago.  Apparently that stuff weathers itselfIndifferent

With the bridge placement revisal, the abutment wall needs a little tweakHuh?

 

More concrete evidence please.

All of the bumping posts along the right of the photo are a distinctive PRR style, in concrete:
