An excellent piece of research. Thanks much for sharing the photos, especially 171 on the Tidewater Southern. Did the TS serve a Chateau Martin winery? I would be very interested to know if the cars were frequent visitors to this line.

From time to time there have been questions about the Chateau Martin wine cars owned by the Commodities Car Company (reporting marks CMWX). Using ORERs I have compiled a roster of the CMWX car fleet from 1950 (when they had 25 cars) to 1972 (down to 8 cars). The fleet peaked at 37 cars in the mid 1960s.
