I invite everyone to spend some time on a hot summer afternoon in Lynn Center, stand on the highway bridge over the Q's tracks and breathe deeply! Ahh, the smell!.

Rick to answer Question #1) blood shipped in boxcars would be dried blood. It would be dried at the slaughter house. Whole blood is rather corrosive and thus was typically shipped in glass lined tankcars. Dried blood had value, commonly used as a feed additive or as fertilizer, and for blood meal.
