All,

As I exhibited in TKM the PRR handled the Lions share of the hauls
for all perishable produce traffic from the Mississippi east, nearly
the sum of the NKP and Erie together, for most of the 50's (and
Likely before) until the traffic dwindled to truck and TOFC business.

The wildest dreams of the red team ?

In the late 50's-early 60's the NYC had at least three daily trainloads
of perishables east from chicago and St. Louis.

And PRR couldn't touch us for service to New York and New England.
