Before mechanical refrigeration, ice was the primary method of cooling perishables. Loading blocks of ice into the rooftop hatches of solid reefer trains would be a daunting task were it not for the construction of icing platforms that brought the ice up to car height for speedier icing and re-icing of the trains.
