OK now I am confused. I thought the Sunshine meat reefer for Cudahy
was for the Wisconsin meat packers. The CRLX cars were Cudahy Car

on the NKP. Are there two separate Cudahy meat packing companies? The
emails make is sound like there were different corporations.
Brian, I'm no expert on the meat industry, but I believe there
WERE two separate Cudahy companies, one called Cudahy Brothers and
later Patrick Cudahy Inc., based in Wisconsin, the other called Cudahy
Packing, based in Omaha. Someone more knowledgeable than me about
details should chime in here and give us the whole story.
