Re: Apparently, Boston & Maine boxcars made it to Florida

Donald B. Valentine

    In earlier years in boxcars but in post war years in gondolas with poles in

place to extend their height one could see B&M cars headed to Florida from

late October till early December each year. By now it should be obvious that

they were carrying Christmas trees. Mostly these were balsam or spruce but

other varieties are now grown as well. Alas they go by truck. Many other goods

manufactured within the B&M’s territory made to Florida by rail as well. What

might they have been loaded with for the trip back?


Cordially, Don Valentine
