Tim & Tom,

The PRR Society's Keystone had an article abot the NJ peach crop, and the express service trains that hauled them to NYC & Phila.. Back about 4 years, IIRC.
Would no doubt be safe in thinking that any seasonal consumable would have a schedule on most east coast RR's; be it reefer, ventilated, or insulated car.
1) When were these express service trains operated? Before or after trucks?
2) Express Service was not considered to be part of the Freight Commodity Statistics.
3) Is the last sentence a question? Or a statement? Are you referring to originating, through or terminating service?
