Hi Charles,
While I have no interest nor intention to model wine movements, the blog posts and your approach to the analysis were indeed a very interesting read – thanks!

Subject: [STMFC] Data for Wine Commodity Flows

Hello Group,

Tony Thompson's talk at RPM Chicagoland this last October got me interested in rail shipments of wine.  I've compiled a bunch of data, and am documenting the wine commodity flow in the late steam era (1950 through 1960) in a series of blog posts, trying to take the topic from raw prototype data to completing a reasonable replica of this traffic flow on my layout setting.  Those interested can find the first two parts here:




Part 1 discusses the national statistics (car types, weights, and line haul distances), and Part 2 discusses the state-to-state distributions.
