"Railroad" Centennial Album, Plate #33, 1946
Title:  "Railroad" Centennial Album, Plate #33, 1946
Description:  Here is the 33rd of 36 plates constituting the "Centennial Album of Pennsylvania R.R. Photos and Prints." It was published in the April 1946 issue of "Railroad" magazine, page 42. Photo Caption: "Gig Tops. After a disasterous passenger train wreck on the Camden & Amboy, gig tops were applied to the tenders, giving the head brakeman a shelter from which to survey the cars behind. He also had a long brake lever at his side which pinched down tender-wheel shoes. This is Danforth Cooke-built Number 7 as she looked in the early '60s."
