Re: Ice refrigerators lettered "RD"



The list that David Turner is referring to is from SP&S Chief Engineer File SPS 8171 which was the AFE for construction of icing facilities at Portland. The list is from October 15, 1945 to October 29, 1945. The list shows quite a few carloads of turkeys that originated in Portland, Albany, and Eugene, OR. Destination was New York City, Chicago, and Seattle. Besides the SFRD cars these were also loaded in MDT, URT, PFE, WFE, NWX, and NRC cars. Also at this same time was shipments of frozen fruit.

This file and many others are from the SP&S and it's subsidiaries and areĀ in the SP&S Ry. Historical Society Archives.
