OK- third time is the charm. Here is the smaller file of the hot metal
train photo. I remembered to attach the file this time.

Here is a weather-appropriate shot for the Holiday. While it looks
"Christmasy", I believe I took this shot the Saturday before Easter in 1978.
I think this is an empty hot metal car move, though all you can see in this
shot are a few of the spacer cars. The train is at Westlakes crossing in
Youngstown, running railroad-East, and probably headed for NK yard.
Centuries were pretty common on HM trains in the mid-70's.
