Milkcars on the L&HR

Post by walterconklin » Sat Jan 24, 2015 2:15 pm

Hello,

Does anyone have any photos and/or diagrams that you can send me please which show the types of refrigerated boxcars typically used to transport milk and other dairy products on the L&HR? The period I am interested in is the late/mid 1920s to the early 1950s. This is the approximate period represented by the virtual Tristate Route. I am in need of photos, images, and ideally diagrams to create a fleet of refrigerated boxcar models to go with the Tristate route.

Sincerely,
Walter Conklin

Walter,
