Would Wine cars of any number of domes be appropriate for the 1930's ?

Hello Tim ,All
There was some discussion of winecars on this list a
while back, and one post {gatx417?}had a Bob Morris
photo of Fresno with many wine cars in view. So for
the central valley in the 50s-60s at least,wine cars
were not an oddity. This is enough of an excuse for me
to build a 6 dome wine car for my N scale 64'
Coastline layout.

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