Hi List Members,

 

Here are a few more images...

 

 

 

Quite a bit of misinformation about this car and its sisters, Claus, though it is from the source not ypu.

Most notable is the fact that none of these cars were ever refrigerated. They were super insulated, if you

will, to the point where milk cooled to 39F before being piped into the car rarely increased by more than a

degree in nearly two days as General American proved with some of their first such cars constructed in the

mid-1920’s. I’m not aware of any surviving Borden “butterdish” style milk cars but there are a few of the

6,000 gal. General American - Pfaudler Corp. milk cars in railroad museums around the country. Unfortunately

there are none here in New England where the first and some of the last such cars ran.

 

My best, Don Valentine
