Re: Refrigerator Car Return Instruction 1955

The primary (?) reason for the FGE/WFE relationship was the ability to “follow the harvest” between the NW and South through the year. I realize there are many crop types in SFRD and PFE territory but was the use of reefers in LCL service because they were less used (out west) at various times during the year? There are many records showing which cars were used for banana shipments out of the Port of Charleston (Southern ran one of the banana piers there) but PFE and SFRD (plus others) were seldom seen.
