Inscription.  Built by the Goodman Equipment Corporation to extract lead ore (galena) from the St. Joe Mineral Mines in Bonne Terre, Missouri, these two ton capacity cars were pulled by the eight ton electric locomotive. Power supply came from an overhead source. This unit was used to transport the raw ore from the mining face to the hoist of the deep tunnel mine, which lifted the ore to the surface. Donated in 1973 by the St. Joe Lead Company.
