Actually, I would jump at the opportunity to get a bottle of these pickles!
Something about ambiance. I am afraid that all of today's pickles ship by highway trucks.

Considering what that pickle car looks like, I don’t think I’d want one of their pickles.

Besides, the INSIDE of the vat is what’s important. 

Thanks!

Perhaps not all ! For a while in the 1990's Heinz was loading many freight cars every day in Toledo
to be conveyed on Amtrak trains. They were loaded LCL style at the Toledo Union Station. :-)

And of course lots of stuff now moves in intermodal containers, so it's not all highway miles. The last
mile to the store was always by road.
