FW: FGEX 5165
The First Quarter 2005 issue of The Milwaukee Railroader at page 12 has a
color picture of this car with 8 hinges on the door and lettering on the
right of the door: DOUBLE DECK and under that the usual Ventilator and
Refrigerator. I have not seen a reefer labelled double deck. Does anyone
know what commodities would have been hauled by it and anything about the
number of these cars Fruit Growers had?
Would berries or eggs have been the usual load? That had to have been
backbreaking work to crawl with loads in that car.!!!
