Remarks & Notes 
This CPR barge shot is very unusual in that there are 4 mechanical reefers on their way to Nakusp sawmill to pick up white pine lumber. According to the crew the white pine must be refrigerated or at least temperature controlled so it doesn't change color while in transit. They said these loads were going to Georgia to be made into furniture. The barge operation ended in December, 1988.

Do you ever get the feeling as a model railroader, that you just might be creating something not "prototypical?" Same here.
