Seen at the NYS&W engine house in Binghamton, NY: aA forty foot reefer with four trucks certainly does belong in a museum,
Jeff, if not in a freak show.
Seriously, based on the physical description of the car and the date on the
truck side frames, it's got to be one of the steel reefers built by GATC in
1950 for URTX. The number isn't an as-built number. However, by the early
1960s a bunch of these cars had been fitted with 6' plug doors in place of
their original 4' leaf doors and renumbered. For an example, see the photo
of URTX 38041 on p. 25 of the Henderson "Classic Freight Cars" Vol. 3
reefer book. According to my 1/62 ORER, the dimensions of the URTX
24000-24999 series were exactly the same as those of the 38000-38099
series, so I'll bet the car was originally URTX 24007.
