Re: Livestock through Chicago


  I have seen from letters in my railroads files - icing reports called up for investigations of produce gone bad.

    One I recall was produce gone bad and the icing reports from all the railroads who handled the car were collected. Load originated in Wash. state and at either Laurel, MT or Dickinson, ND (?) - no ice was reported as added because bunker was found full.
     Letter from GM stated that given outside temperature and time since prior icing staff at site should have checked and poked to see if this was a false ice dome and superintendent at site was asked for better performance or find a replacement who could give that. No need to guess who paid entire claim.
