Cool thread guys! I love seeing those old local co-op elevator cars.
Any Klemme Co-op Grain car pics? I grew up near there and remember the fleet of pink grain cars. There are still a few around even though the co-op has been sold.

Here are 3 from last weekend and one from a de-railment from a month ago. One hopper that is on the dead list. Lat week I had the chance to see 3 Milwaukee Road hoppers in the yard here. One is the one posted earlier than these two.

Not old but I have to respect the political point and most of all the straight lines in the art work

Sorry for the crappy Iphone quality
