DM&IR ore jenny used for dried sand in CN's Keenan YD; note the 1937 builder's date and the drawbar has been removed from the A-end.

Interesting old cars. Thanks for posting.
The Keenan Yd is full of ore jennies with builders dates from the mid to late 40s and early 50s; it is interesting to me to think that they were coupled to steam engines and now are being moved by locomotives that weren't even dreamed of then.
