The Rutland Railroad used to bring freight from Ogdensburg (which was the last navigable port downstream from the Great Lakes prior to the construction of the St. Lawrence Seaway) to the eastern seaboard. It also brought fresh milk, cheese, and butter from the dairy region on the top of New York State to the markets in Boston and New York. The refrigerated boxcar was invented by the Rutland Railroad. It was a car build within a car, and the space in-between filled with cork insulation and ice used to keep the contents cool. Ice was plentiful in the North Country, harvested from frozen lakes.
