I am curious if there were Icing platform's on the NWP like the PFE had in LA? I seem to remember a statistic that an iced reefer could go about 250 miles without needing to be reiced. How about for refrigerated items coming off the NWP like Milk, Eggs etc? Any one know anything about this kind of activity or know where I might find this info?
When we moved to Ukiah in 1966 there was a ice company/house at the north end of the Healdsburg yard. I do not remember there being a ice plat form, but it was right next to the tracks.
There is a street that runs east/west and crossed the tracks right next to where that ice company was.
