This D&RGW boxcar is found at Gunnison, Colorado.

According to Rio Grande Color Guide to Freight and Passenger Equipment (MSCG), 63700 – 63799 series cars were built in 1963 by American Car & Foundry. The stencil on body shows this car was assigned to copper bullion loading at Salt Lake City, Utah.

このRio Grandeオリジナルの表記を保つ貨車は、コロラド州Gunnisonの町で見つけた。1963年American Car & Foundry製、D&RGW 63700 – 63799 series XLの内の1両。ソルト・レイク・シティを拠点に、銅の延べ棒輸送に充てられていたようだ。
