Hand Car House  Contributor's Pick!       
Looking north east (railroad east) from the Skillman depot, to the left is the hand car house (or motor car shed,) with a section gang car sitting in front of it. This car would be pulled by a small motor car (probably in the shed) to take the section gang to their work, which must have been intense. I have been told that all four tracks had a 75 MPH speed limit. This, and the other shots in this series, were taken with a 620 Brownie.
