See how rail moved America's produce! From the late 1800s through the 1960s, the produce industry was a key railroad customer, as railcars transported all types of fruit and vegetables from various growing areas to the marketplace.

From the late 1800s to the 1960s, the railroad industry faced a unique challenge: What was the best way to ship fresh produce across the U.S. to prevent spoiling? Produce Traffic & Trains looks at the development of refrigerator cars and how their development led to wide-scale growing and shipping of produce.

Covered topics include:

  • The development of refrigerator cars, car fleets, and produce terminals.
  • Harvesting, loading, shipping, and delivering fresh produce, and later frozen products.
  • Running express trains, making ice and icing stations, and carrying out perishable operations.
