Re: Here's the Scoop...
Back in the mid-60s I saw C&O pick up cars from the DTI yard around that NE wye. In the cut were a number of automobile frames stacked vertically in gons. (This was before they started shipping frames horizontally on flat cars.) The frames were going from Ford's Rouge frame plant to the Wixom assembly plant. I thought at the time that was a rather short distance for a rail haul. I think Wixom assembled T-Birds and Continentals then and assumed the frames were for the Continental line.
