I’m more interested in the waycar….note it has a high-arch cupola like some of the Aurora Shops drawings show and retains the cutout in the fascia board near the ends for the lantern box windows which have been sheathed over. It looks like it was an unusual car because most waycars had the window near the forward edge of the cupola and no window is visible in the shot. It retains the gig-top signal lamp and original short platform with wood steps.

Two of the cars have 1923 reweigh dates and another was built in 1922-23. Location of the photos is the railroad stockyard at Cody, Wyo.
These must be early photos as the cars have arch bar trucks and truss rods. Also note the vertical car members also have steel rods that can be tightened.
Nice to see both decks being loaded at the same time.
