Canned goods in reefers!  June thru Sept.  Wondering why.  What does RR Bob have to say?

       Until the early 1950s, the "insulated boxcar of the day" was the ordinary reefer. Everything from pharmaceuticals to dry goods to canned goods moved routinely in reefers if weather extremes were expected. 
      Numerous cargoes of these kinds are described in the PFE book.
