West Penn Railways
Car 291 (297?) at Greensburg Carhouse.
This picture shows clearly that this car has had the last number changed.  The West Penn would renumber cars for insurance purposes.  A car that was being retired with insurance coverage left, would have another car renumbered to take its place.
