Would Wine cars of any number of domes be appropriate for the 1930's ?
Depends on when in the 1930s. Obviously, bulk wine wasn't shipped at all until after the repeal of prohibition in 1933. However, three compartment insulated, glass lined tank cars for wine shipments were built by both AC&F and GATC as early as 1937, though six compartment cars didn't begin to appear until 1939.
