One thing further I have learned about Gallo's shipping-- they do ship outbound product in Cryogenic boxcars. Some of these wind up on the Reading & Northern's flagship "North Reading Fast Freight" that is popular with photographers. Just search "NRFF" on the photo homepage and you'll find plenty of shots of it.

Those cars are bound for a distribution center in Scranton, PA. R&N receives the majority of its interchange from NS. I could see an NS haul from the L&C up to the R&N (with strong shortline partners in both of these companies) being long enough with high-value traffic to garner NS' interest.
