I defer to others with more knowledge about PFE operations, but I
think it depends on what you mean by "blocks of reefers". You'll find,
that in general solid trains of reefers ie: Salinas Vegetable Blocks
(SVB) were run as extras from Watsonville as needed. However, you
could find "blocks" of reefers making up substantial portions of
regularly scheduled 2nd class trains as well. See the Coast Line,
Western Division etc. books by Signor or pictorial type books for good
photos of both scenarios.
