As an addendum -
 
Please - Do not misunderstand me to suggest that John Waite was promoting any revisionist agenda other than preserving and sharing the history of the ET&WNC.
 
Absolutely not my intent.
 
Thanks,

The photos referred to in the posting refer to two different things. Combine 15 was in three parts, baggage, passenger and mail. There was not a partition in the 15 to divide the races. I cant reply to the posting, but while the 15 may have been used as a Jim Crow car, there was no division between them in the car itself.
