It's 1943 and the country is at war. Allied victories are turning the tide of the war and America's industries and the country's railroads, big and small, are doing their part. The Maryland & Pennsylvania RR (Affectionately known as The Ma & Pa) might not have been as busy as the big RRs, still played its part in contributing to the eventual Allied victory.
Come and see this all relived again as I build an HO scale version of The Ma & Pa, 1943.

Where is this Wednesday #9
Where is this?

Once again, Dick Bradley provided the answer for last week's Where is it Wednesday. Here it is:
This early July 1971 Kodachrome slide is of the northerly side of the
Hespenheide & Thompson feed mill brick buildings at Beaver and North
streets in the city of York, Pa. Hespenheide & Thompson was served
by the NC/PRR/PC until hurricane Agnes severed the line in August 1972.
York County obtained the line and the Ma & Pa operated it. The
abandoned coal dealer was on the Western Maryland whose tracks are in
the foreground. Upon dissolution of the WM by the CSX the line was
acquired by Emons and then Ma & Pa and Yorkrail equipment was used
on it. It is now the York Railway of Genesee &Wyoming Industries.
