Dubuque URTX refrigerator car

Thomas Baker



I have a kit for a 40' Dubuque URTX wood refrigerator car.  Its number is 63971.  These two factors raise suspicions that the sides have been silk-screened or pad printed inaccurately.  First, I was not aware that Dubuque Packing leased wood cars that were 40'.  Second, the number seems to be too high for a series of Dubuque leases of URTX wood cars.  Well, the roof was metal, so that may make them composite cars, but the two points still raise doubts.  Can anyone on the list enlighten me.
