When I was a college kid, I worked at the local pickle cannery during the summers. Before the green run started, we used to get a few shipments of cucumbers in refrigerated boxcars. These were shipped up from way down south. Refrigeration consisted of blocks of ice dumped in chambers at the ends of the cars, and fans driven by the movement of the wheels. Would have worked OK if the cars had been kept moving, but almost every time, the cars got sidetracked in some hot rail yard under the sun for several days, without moving. Those cukes were a nightmare.
