Re: grain box cars were primary coal carriers
There is a list from a depot agent's seal book in the M&StL group
files for Fairfax MN. There are several box cars of coal delivered and
these same cars were filled with corn before being picked up. All
probably to and from the Twin Ports.
Minnesota is big on twin names. You got the Twin Cities, Twin Ports,
Minnesota Twins, Ole and Lena....
