Re: Before Cardboard Appliance Containers <caboose9792@...>

Reasom being in part to the taifs being lower for applinces loaded in crates vs paper products given to the loads. The higher risk of damage being the driver. I have study in my files about how to determane the way to get the best price to the destanation and applinces being the example.

Bob,Yes, the B&O box car is a class M-26D, the lettering for the class is visible through the windshield, in its as-built appearance. Some orders of M-26D were delivered with Youngstown doors. Notice the chalk marks on the sides. An interesting photo.I seem to recall that appliances and similarly sized objects were shipped in "crates" into the 1960s. Some items still are shipped in crates.Bob Witt
