Re: Wine car ops

I wonder sometimes whether the "abundant photographic evidence"
is more related to the oddity of a car than to quantity.

Of course! But the fact remains that bulk wine travelled quite far
and wide for the reasons Richard explained, and so the cars may be
uncommon, but nevertheless -did- travel many routes. In fact there
are still wine tank cars in service today, but they are big, black
anonymous looking 25,000 gallon jobs (e.g. CWCX 00005, photographed
at Canandiagua Wine in NY in 2004).
