Re: Milk Containers on Flat Cars - Help with Colors
Donald B. Valentine <riverman_vt@...>
Renken’s Dairy also used the roll-on, roll-off milk containers. In several
Photos I have seen of both the Renken and some Borden’s containers seem
to indicate a red color which is also believed to have been used by Sealtest
for cars used by the General Ice Cream Co. that supplied the base mix for
ice cream to ice cream makers.
Hope this helps rather than leaving you more puzzled as color photos are
rare. Be aware that there were at least two and I think three styles of tanks
used as well. Randy has photos of one and I have drawings for another
received from Fruit Growers Express, which basically owned National Car,
long gone facility at Potomac Yard.
Cordially, Don Valentine
