Re: Poultry Car

Friends,

Here's a question I've never seen discussed. These cars carried an attendant to feed and water the birds. If several cars were grouped together to same destination, would they have an attendant for each car, or would one man be expected to care for several cars?

Yours Aye,


Garth Groff

It looks similar to this Live Poultry Transit car that appeared among the Barriger Flickr collection recently.

The caption reads, "This photo shows an outside metal framed boxcar without the wood panels.� The metal frame on this boxcar was being coated with rust protection.� I am guessing this car was being rebuilt or repaired and the inside wood framing has yet to be installed.� There are various parts laying on the ground around the car."

This looks to me to be a poultry car similar to this one:
