Subject: EL lives, in Altoona!

Attached is a photo I shot in Altoona, PA approximately two weeks ago on a
stop-over to Pittsburgh. Surprisingly, another EL boxcar has resurfaced!
This one is deep in the old hump yard, and I used a telephoto to get this
shot from the road adjacent to the Juniata Locomotive shops. The car appears
to be in good condition. It also seems to have worn the 100000-series
numbers that some later boxcars wore for company service... Yes, the other
EL boxcar sitting along the south side of the Altoona yard is still there,
and in slightly worse condition (paint-wise) than the attached car...
Note the car to the left, an also-rare former PRR X29 boxcar in PC yellow
Anyone know folks at NS that can pull some strings to save this one?
