Re: Wine Cars

The NH had the same problems with leaking valves on car loads of alcohol shipped from Canada to Old Mister Boston distilling. The B&A didn't have that problem with S S Pierce, the wine car was inside! Points of interest.

I could be done if you had the right tools but I doubt that they
would be available in the yard. But the one in Emporia Ks, I saw it.
The Eastbound lead job had cut it out as a BO and the carmen were
working on it to stop the leak. Se we got some wine from it and they
finaly got it stopped. Fun night though.
Thank you
