Re: PFE Express Reefer in NYC Express Train

bill stanton

ok its getting more clear now
at least 3 different scenarios mentioned...
  1. if a string of express reefers all needed icing they could be done together in a bunch
  2. if an individual car needed pre icing and it didn't hurt a psgr schedule it could be done along with ordinary reefers
  3. if a car in a psgr train needed icing, odds are done by truck at the depot so as to not delay the train
thanks to all

There was a small ice house at the south end of the platforms, beyond the express facility, at Wichita Union Station.  It was probably there for the purpose of icing passenger cars as needed.  There was also a ramp right by it, for vehicular access to the platforms, which I used to drive up on when I was watching passenger trains.  So if an express reefer needed icing, which was probably a rare occurrence there, it wouldn't have been hard to do.
