Acetylene  car

Acetylene car located at the Queen mine

  One side would fit oxygen the other side fits acetylene , then the bottles would be  securely chained to the car. The gauges, tips, parts, etc. would be transported inside the box. The cars were built in Bisbee at the mine shops  and used until underground operations ended.
