Many thousand freight cars not of recent pattern will be re duced to junk or sold by the Pennsylvania Railroad because they are not of sufficient capa city. or for other reasons are not suited to the needs of the system. They will be replaced by cars of modern design and steel construction. Curious as it may appear at first thought, the decision to destroy or dis pose of these cars is of a con structive, rather than a destruc tive character. The steel cars that will take their places are much heavier, more durable, of greater capacity and in every way more desirable. The Arizona & California Railroad, a branch of the Santa Fe. commences five miles north of Wic ken burg - , Arizona, on the main line of the Santa Fe, Pres cott & Phoenix Railroad, and proceeds almost due west, con nection is made with the main line west to Bengal, Cal., where a connection is made with the main line of the Santa Fe Rail road.
