Group;

 

I may have missed my mark.

 

PRR created the X54 to provide Campbell’s Soup in particular, a fleet of cars for which they could avoid dependence on gathering enough other cars to meet their daily needs.

 

Many customers of the PRR asked PRR for dedicated or purpose-built cars.  By the fifties, they had to comply.

Have you ever spent time inside a closed freight car sitting in bright sunlight for a week?

How 'bout a week at -20 deg. F? Guaranteed to freeze the contents and burst the cans. There is a reason for modern RBL's.
