bananas (was RE: URTX and MILW...)

Tim O'Connor

I think it would be a very large share - 75% or more.

Ripe strawberries were a seasonal cargo from Louisiana (traveling in express reefers)
Probably other seasonal fruits in there too - melons, peaches... But bananas grow the
year round.

Is that 31,000 for originated loads, or total loads?

Just a quick look at your 1925 showed around 31,000 fresh fruit loads for the Illnois Central.
Anyone know how much bannas made up that number? Just curious.
