Pandora info needed

On the eastern end of Pandora, the AC&Y switched the Russell Company. Did the building have individual doors for boxcars or was there a loading dock along the building? Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Re: AC&Y R2

It started as a PFM USRA light mikado. It has brass and resin details, many are one of a kind. The valve gear is precision scale, the tender is resin.

The ramp was at the east end of the yard on the north side. It is still there in the weeds.

Re: Maybe the last active AC&Y equipment?
