Were the bananas ever handled in express reefers on
passenger trains, the way many fresh fruit crops were?

Hi Clark,
East Dubuque, Ill. (and prior to that Dubuque, Iowa) was where IC
banana trains were split between Milw, CBQ and CGW and the IC. I was
told the Milwaukee ran a extra train for as few as 6 cars of
bananas. The cars were of top priority for all the roads.
