By 1952 a number of the containers for NX flat cars had transitioned from milk. Some handled bulk orange juice and others went to Borden Chemicals for transport of various products of theirs.

Yeah, but not around Renovo.

There's very little around Renovo, other than trees. A 19th century travel book called the stretch of the then Philadelphia and Erie rom Renovo westward to Ridgway "a seventy five mile tunnel through the trees"

That's pretty likely. There ARE cows in Penna., you know.

I live not far from Renovo and I'm having trouble understanding what a milk tank car would be doing there. Perhaps it was merely passing through on its way to some place where there were cows?
