Back in the 40/50s Gallo made a blue grape wine called TOKAY. You could buy it for 50 cents a bottle. It tasted very bad but the Winos bought it by the case. We nicked named it I. W..Tokay. That was probably one of the wines shipped in the cars with insulation. Between Tokay and Bay Rum we kept the winos pretty well hooked.
Thank you

I'm surprised to see wine arriving in what appears to be regular,
single dome tank cars. I don't think those cars could have been used
for anything previously except to haul wine.
