Re: Beer Shipments in 1950

Dave Nelson

In 1950 Georgia was #9 in the list of states who received beer by rail
shipments, about 2.68% of all such shipments nationally. I don't see the
number of carloads that required... it's around here somewhere and I just
need to find it.

Roughly half of all rail shipped beer originated in the Midwest. In order
of most shipments, WI, IL, OH, MO.

How prevalent were beer shipments by rail in 1950 and what type(s) of cars
were principally used to handle this business? Particularly, I am
interested in shipments destined for Georgia or Alabama.

Thank you.
