Looks like a coal train in West Virginia, Pennsylvania, or Ohio. My dad was actually a boilermaker on the B&O railroad when the engines burned coal.

I build similar coal cars for N & S, in Roanoke VA.

When the steam engines finally disappeared completely in the early 50's, they put dad to work building freight cars until his final lay off in '56. From there he went to work at International Harvester building some of the trucks that had cost him his railroad job.
