Re: Refrigerator Cars - Salt Water Drippings

According to my friend Chuck Yungkurth, the steel bridges on the ERIE eastbound track across the Southern Tier of New York had significant corrosion from the ice drippings from eastbound reefer loads.  So much so, that it affected the way trains were routed in the 1970s-1990s, IIRC.

I think that may answer your question.
