Nice report from Rob Davis on the "Ahead of the Torch" website about a vintage ore car at the old Bethlehem Steel plant. Looks like a nice car for some museum that doesn't have an ore car in their collection, and probably a fairly easy move by truck due to its short length and low height.

A Facebook page is not a "website," no matter how many people act as if it's such.

Link to the relevant page:

The presence of a tie tamper adjacent and touch-up paint on the car suggests it's being kept as a ballast hopper for what track repair might be undertaken by the RR instead of contractors.
