Hi Ken and Bob,


The car in question sure looks a whole lot like the car in the attached image...

Could this be a milk car temporarily converted to a stock car?

Photo: Breeding & Show Cattle In An Express Reefer

Photo from the Savor Snoqualmie Valley website:

The doors are missing. The car appears to have passenger car trucks.

The photo is from an article on Carnation Farms, which states:

“The foundation herd cultivated by Carnation became breeding stock the world over. This meant that across the world, dairy farmers were able to get more milk from fewer cows leading to more stable food security, reduced labor needs (fewer cows mean fewer four-times-per-day milkings), and decreased footprint and environmental impact per gallon of milk. The legacy Carnation cows can be seen in dairy bloodlines across the world, to this day.”
