Freight Cars

Company rolling stock was not common. The following are some of the rare pieces owned by the H&F.

Potomac Edison Hopper

Here is a hopper used to move ash at the R. Paul Smith Power Plant in Williamsport. Built in May, 1927.

Flat Car Number 202

Equipped with arch bar trucks, it certainly stayed only on the property by the time this photo was taken August 28, 1955.

Tank Car Number 50

(Looking for a good high resolution photo of this car.)
