Tom Dill asked:
"Speaking of reefers, is the MDC 50 ft. express reefer close to actual REA reefer?"

No.  The roof curvature is far too shallow to match any REA reefer.  It's actually a good starting point for Lehigh Valley milk cars.  See "Lehigh Valley's 'New' Milk Cars" in the January 1993 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman.
