Remarks & Notes 
Wonder how the flour and sugar for your bread and Twinkies gets to the bakery? Believe it or not, oftentimes by rail! An airslide hopper with lettering for Hostess products is seen passing through Hammond carrying raw materials for some of America's favorite treats. Tom Golden photo.
