An interesting note on ATSF usage. I read several works on the Harvey House operation. These company cars also delivered parshiables to the Harvey House kitchens. And when they got to the end of the line, on the trip back they hauled dirty dining room linen back to a central laundry facility.

I have also written a summary of ice car operations, as they apply on my layout, as well as an explanation of the presence of a Santa Fe car like this on an SP layout.
