[photos] Trains, erm...trains and automobiles (well, trucks)

Out silo hunting, we were driving up Booker Road, through Bruce, WA, in Adams County, when out the corner of my eye I saw the distinctive clerestory roofline of a Pullman car lurking behind a grain elevator. A u-turn was executed and we went to look.

According to the informative brochure available in a little container welded to the truck, it is this car, built when Robert Todd Lincoln was president of the Pullman company. (I snagged a copy of the brochure for garyomaha.) Not sure of the significance of the name "Fred" carefully lettered on each end of the car.

We also found an old BN caboose and some miscellaneous militaria across the highway.
