Re: Rapido Meat Reefers


I note that the build date of this particular car is 1937, barely in my era... But, those ice hatch covers look odd to me.  Is that Diamond plate?  Was that around in 1937?  Or, was that added at a later date?  Are there any other possible anachronisms on these cars for a depression-era modeler?  I don't mean to be too picky, we sure have come a long way from the MDC (and Athearn) wood reefers.
