rom 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.
