Here's a shot of an R-40-8... Tony is right it looks a lot like the
R-40-4. Not all R-40-8's had the same underframe, because the series
was a mixture of 30-ton and 40-ton cars -- all of them were rebuilds
of earlier cars.

Dear Colleagues:

I am considering using a Tichy PFE Class R-40-4 reefer as a stand in for the New Haven Ice car I-74. According to the New Haven Guide to Freight and Passenger Equipment, I-74 was former PFE 90551, an R-40-8.

Can anyone tell me what the visible differences would be between these two classes?

Thanks very much.
