Thanks for looking. From your description, the cream compartment is on the
left of the picture, which is the same view as the Burlington Bulletin
photo. The search continues ...

On page 44 there is a cropped 1 5/16" x 2 1/4" photo of the "B" end that
just includes enough of the side to show the full letters RE and a partial F
with the text noting that only reverse Dreadnaught ends the author has seen
was in a picture of Burlington express reefer shown in the 1943 Car
Cyclopedia and that 29 of the fifty food cars were in service in 1949.

During a previous discussion of these cars, it was stated that there was
"something" about them in Mainline Modeller of February 1987. Would anyone
have this issue?
