Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. "Juice Train" is the popular name for famous unit trains of Tropicana fresh orange juice operated by railroads in the United States. Tropicana Products was founded in 1947 in Bradenton, Florida by Anthony T. Rossi, an Italian immigrant, growing from 50 employees to over 8,000 in 2004. Early distribution of fresh orange juice was by way of hand-delivered juice jars to nearby homes, but demand grew, especially in New York City. By 1957, a ship, S.S. Tropicana was taking 1.5 million gallons of juice to New York each week. In 1970, Tropicana orange juice was shipped in bulk via insulated boxcars in one weekly round-trip from Florida to Kearny, New Jersey. By the following year, the company was operating two 60-car unit trains a week, each carrying around 1 million gallons of juice.show more
