When Milk Goes Traveling
Riding along in the earlier milk cars as a loadmaster could become a drafty and exhausting occupation. For in addition to the constant work with 40 liter / 10-2/3 gallon milk cans, the wide spacing between the wooden boards on the ends of the car caused the airstream to whistle through the interior of the car.
Prototype: 2 German Federal Railroad (DB) Bavarian design milk cars. Cars from the first group delivered in 1908 with a flat roof. Both cars still include DR lettering for the British-US Zone. Used in less-than-carload-lot service and for the transport of fresh milk. The cars look as they did around 1952/53.
