Hey Schuyler,

This isn't about a pickle car per se, but there was a Bloch & Guggenheim pickle works on the PRR Elmira Branch at Seneca Castle, NY.  It was still there in the early 1990s when I was researching that line.  There were a lot of pickle cucumbers grown in that area, also a lot of cabbage used for making sauerkraut.  There were sauerkraut plants along the Elmira Branch, also.  Cabbage was occasionally shipped in stock cars.
