    These pictured tail end cars have me wondering- who was their manufacturer? They appear to be rather economically built. Almost as if RR shop-built.

    Pullman-Standard built the car. SP did some cosmetic work in the early 1960s that involved removing the corrugation and replacing it with flat sides.

    It certainly is that. He is nowhere near where he should be stationed.

    Read somewhere that it's "15 minutes walking from rear of train for protection"?

    Might have been at one time. I do not have my Consolidated Code books handy. Seems to me it was more distance oriented in those.

    I don't think that "flagman" is protecting his train any more than enjoying the show going on trackside!
