Well, guess what we found in Corbin KY. The Southern CNO&TP sleeper, French Broad River.
It’s had a rough life since 1950 or so, but it’s now safely, more or less, sitting on a cut section of track to the right of the old depot on, of course, Depot Street. Here’s a look at the end of the car as shown above.
Conneaut OH is up on Lake Erie and in 1914, when this card was mailed, it had at least five railroads passing through it. One was an electric commuter line, others were freight.
I bought this card as soon as I saw it. It’s a typical Curt Teich day-to-night scene, but it’s nicely composed. Other than that, it just evokes a time long gone.
