White Oak is known to not absorb much of anything. If the cars were lined with it, then presumably the moisture would be surface rather than soaked in. I don't think mold would be a problem in this situation.
What kind of wood was used inside these reefers?

Regarding whether bunkers ever dried out I am wondering how many days with a heater in them would it take for a bunker to "dry out?"
Probably about forever, since there was no ventilation (remember, cars in heater service were placarded "POISON FUMES") so no place for the water to go. I can envision the water just condensing back out as it contacted cooler surfaces of the car interior.
No one has answered my previous question; Has anyone run into specifications for a cleaning solution to be used while cleaning the cars? That would be the answer to mold and mildew.
