    Given the way a reefer is sealed I would expect it would at least initially float in flood waters if it were empty. MDTX #18122, judging by the high water mark on its end, does not appear to have done so, nor

do the cars beyond it. This leads me to conclude that all were loaded. While not knowing what the boxcars might have been loaded with means it would be difficult to comment about the condition of their loads, I’ll venture to guess that that of the reefer must be a total loss.

 

Cordially, Don Valentine
