A&Y Dave in MD
Reviewing the whole thread, I can see that 1957 is your "error". :-)
These would be appropriate if you didn't model that error, and instead chose an earlier time period. lol.
I can tell you that in 1934, my conductor log database for the Southern's Winston-Salem division shows Kingan reefers being routed (with meat) to Mt. Airy, NC on a regular basis. They were routed back to Richmond, VA . Other reefers for other companies went elsewhere empty, like Morrell seemed to be routed empty to East St. Louis or St. Louis. And Schluderberg-Kurdle (now Esskay S-K) were routed to Baltimore via Potomac Yard. That makes me think Richmond might be either a transfer point or it had a Kingan branch house.
