The page also includes other new photos: (1) a 1948 b&w photo showing
a 25-car trainload of Chateau Martin wine after arrival in the Bronx,
NY, and (2) two recent photos of the former Chateau Martin winery in
Waterford, CA.


Thanks for the update info and for posting the photos.

In the 1948 Bronx photo it is interesting to me that a few of the cars
appear to be non-insulated types. I have always associated wine
shipments with insulated tanks. Was this a rare event? If not, is
anyone aware of any non-insulated tanks (owners, reporting marks) in
California wine service during '52-'53?
