In the new issue of the New Haven Shoreliner (NHRHTA) there is a photo of a New Haven DEY-3 (S-1) switching a reefer on which is written in large letters"WIMP Packing Company" Can anyone tell me about WIMP? The photo is dated September 28, 1957.

Steve, I doubt that WIMP is still in business, but it was a small family-owned packing house in Chicago that specialized in sausage. The name comes from the family that owned it. Roy Wimp was president and general manager.
