Help with C&EI FGE insulated box cars


David Forbes
 

I am researching the Chicago & Eastern Illinois involvement with Fruit Growers Express and am looking for more information on FGE itself. Does anyone know where I might find FGE records of C&EI lease agreements? Any help would be appreciated.

At this point I have what I believe to be a complete roster with around eight or so photos.

Question, from what I have read, FGE started around 1920 but the C&EI didn't begin to lease cars till 1952, why not earlier?

Again, any help appreciated,
