Transportation Company - Mathieson Dry Ice - Chemicals

Company History: The Mathieson Chemical Company was located in Saltville Virgina. They mined limestone and produced alkali. One of the bi-products of their production was the creation of lots of Carbon dioxide. Given the usefulness of the frozen CO2, marketed as Dry Ice, Mathieson froze the gas and shipped it to various consumer industries. Initially this was done using tradional wooden reefers, but they later developed a highly specialized car in 1936 for shipping their vaporizing product. This car with it's unusual "cant" has proven to be far superior for hauling Solid Carbon dioxide or more commonly known as "Dry Ice".
