Re: Sulphur transport

Tom & Garth-

Another good source is the first volume of Tony's SP Freight Car
series. Lots of photos of the bulk sulfer composite gondolas on the T&NO.

The SP and Santa Fe had special composite gondolas for freshly-mined
bulk sulfur. The wood body was not harmed by sulfuric acid that formed
when the loads got wet. Ed Christ wrote an article on these cars for
September 1981 RMC. I no longer have the article, but the author had
quite a bit of additional information on the sulfur industry, and how
finished sulfur was shipped might well be discussed there.

Kind regards,

Hello, list. How was sulphur for the fertilizer industry
transported in the 1940s; molten or bagged or dry bulk? Thnaks, Tom
