Thanks again, Claus... I nominate Jack Delano as patron saint of STMFC. So
many more images he took during WWII that I had not seen previously!

I'll second that motion, Eric, and the stuff he took in Northern Vermont when visiting his boss at the latter's summer home on Caspian Lake has blown my socks of for years. He has some great shots in the villages of the businesses served by the St. J. & L. C. even if not many of the trains themselves.

Cordially, Don Valentine

The IHB cars appear to be ice service cars delivering ice to the facility, (or loading ice going to another). Note that they aren't spotted at the high level icing deck but at a car floor level platform.

IIRC some years ago it was mentioned on this list (I think) that two-car helium shipments were typical in the WW2 period. The two cars here are a nice example.

Jack, actually the ice dock on the IHB was a double deck affair. What is
visible in the photo
http://www.loc.gov/pictures/item/owi2001016254/PP/resource/ is several rows
of reefers with the ice dock in the background. But you are only seeing the
upper level of the ice dock which is lined with ice carts, which are filled
with crushed ice commonly used to ice meat reefers. The ice was dumped from
the cart via a funnel or chute down into the ice bunker hatch, hence the
double deck ice dock, where the upper deck was about 10' above the roof of
the cars being iced. If you look close you can see one of the salt boxes on
a leg of the dock, which had an opening at the bottom for scooping shovels
of salt. The opening being on the lower (not visible) which would be at the
height of the car roof and would have the common chain moving solid blocks
of ice which were slid over to the ice bunker hatch and broken up into the
sizes specified by the shipper, more typical for cars hauling fruit or
produce.

Hi Jack,

Good to have your additional interpretations for these!
