Re: Xmas Trees by Rail?

Now talk about coincidences! I was, for some reason, trying yesterday to think of a certain supermarket in SoCal, and was thought that maybe I would do a search and see if I could find the companies name, and here it is, you mention Market Basket! Thanks Charlie!

I remember handling box cars of Christmas trees in the 1970-1984 in L.A. when I worked on the Los Angeles Junction Ry. They came in many cars mostly from the north west (SP&S, NP, GN, Milw) and of course Santa Fe, UP and SP returning to home rails. As I remember they were mostly 40 foot cars. We delivered them to Certified Grocers and Market Basket warehouse's. The guys unloading them there would always give you one, you just had to ask.
