CSS&SB 17
Title:  CSS&SB 17
Description:  CSS&SB Nippon Sharyo 17 at Michigan City, Indiana on November 16, 1982, Kodachrome by Gib Allbach, Chuck Zeiler collection. Gib marked the slide NEW so I would suppose these cars have just been delivered. I wonder how that happened; did they use an adapter coupler or ship them on flatcars? This car lasted a little over two years before being destroyed at Gary, Indiana in a head-on collision with Nippon Sharyo 26 on January 21, 1985.
