Re: Manure shipped by rail

Hello Robert
For many years the PRR shipped carloads of manure from farms to the Kennet Square PA area.  The loads were destined for mushroom growers located throughout the area.  After many years, the shipments were stopped when the local fire departments refused to respond when the loads of manure left in the sun too long would spontaneously combust.  Not a pleasant task.
