Have you ever spent time inside a closed freight car sitting in
bright sunlight for a week?
Those canned goods could easily test the boiling point of water
if it weren't for being in a
freight car that is protected against such temperatures. Modern
insulated box cars are
more or less guaranteed not to gain more than 2 degrees
Fahrenheit every 24 hours.

canned goods shipped in refrigerator cars? I have alway
treated canned goods as something that do not need any special
storage. I'm British and my understanding of canned means the
produce is in a hermetically sealed tin that will keep the
ingredients fresh for at least a few years. I know in America
canned includes mason jars and glassware, but I still don't
see the need for reefers. Were the cars ones that had brought
uncanned fresh produce into the plant so canned goods were a
logical backhaul load.
