I love to railfan all over the United States and Canada. Of course most of my time is spent close to my home here in Dallas/ Fort Worth, Texas- luckily a major rail crossroads. One of my pleasures is to take pictures of freight cars from “Fallen Flags“, railroads that once operated but now have merged or otherwise have disappeared. I can spend a whole day on a main rail line, perhaps the Union Pacific Railroad Little Rock- Fort Worth Main Line east of Dallas, and maybe see 5-10 fallen flags over an entire day. Those are photographs I really cherish. I love the railroad industry today…but the proud history of over a century and a half of the railroad industry makes for some powerful heritage. This Southern Railway box car, seen on a train east of Dallas, is a reminder for me of the 1960s-1970s when Southern Railway proudly proclaimed “Gives The Green Light To Innovations”. With model railroading, thank goodness pristine mint “Fallen Flags” are just a few clicks away. Milwaukee Road? Not too many sightings down here in Texas. No worries! On our Atlas HO Freight Cars Page a brand new graffiti-free Milwaukee Road box car is always available.
