Since we are talking about reefers, I have a more general question. What
line of reefers brought SE produce to the midwest? How about to the east.?
I am looking for about 1953 or so.
Certainly that traffic would have been carried primarily in Fruit Growers
cars (and WFEX and BREX cars operated by Fruit Growers). There might have
been an occasional PFE, SFRD, NWX, or URTX car en route home (or
"captured," if there was a seasonal reefer shortage), but the Fruit Growers
fleet would have predominated.
