Re: MN&S express reefer

Hmm, it is hard to imagine one of those GE cars lugging along an express refrigerator, but possible. I purchased a photo of a URTX refrigerator car leased to the MN&S. The photo was taken, I believe, in the Washington, D. C. area. I have long puzzled over why the MN&S leased any refrigerator cars at all. Was there some perishable traffic on-line that the MN&S served exclusively. After all, the outfit connected with the CGW at Randolph, Minnesota, and with the SOO LINE at Shoreham Shops, and both the CGW and the SOO leased refrigerator cars from URTX.
