Classic Rolling Stock

This collection is a sampling of rolling stock photos taken by my father in the 1960s and 70s using his 120 film Twin Reflex camera. Our home for more than a decade, many of these shots were taken in Huntsville, Alabama, as freight cars moved through that area on the Louisville & Nashville and Southern railroads ... but other Deep South locations are included as well. My personal favorites: Atlantic Coast Line #17302, a watermelon car found in the panhandle of Florida; and Brown Miller Company #210, a pickle car discovered near the Bonhomie & Hattiesburg Southern in Mississippi.
