Re: Early Fruit Transportation . . . . . oyster box cars

Circa 1880, the ministers in the C&O Richmond-to-Newport News area were complaining about iced oyster cars going to Cincinnati.  Reason being, they came back filled with beer and those fast trains had to be crewed seven days a week including Sundays.  They wanted all crews back home, and sober, with their families on Sunday mornings.
