This string of motors awaiting disposition at Detroit in March 1954 included members of classes R-1 and R-1a. Behind No. 161 of class R-1 are No. 169 of class R-1a, No. 165 of class R-1, and several others. The R-1a class came from General Electric in 1914. These steeplecabs were sent to Ohio for scrapping not long after I took this photograph.
