Re: URTX refrigerator car

Gene Green's reefer book has a photo of URTX 5093 with the world's smallest CGW "Lucky Strike" herald, must only be 18" in diameter, last reweigh 1-52, definitely wood roof and ends, painted FCR. The "bib" under the door is black.

Likewise URTX 5861 with a Soo Line herald, and URTX 4975 with the older M&StL herald. Several other cars assigned to the Soo and Louie with steel ends and roof painted black, but no other CGW pix. One other thing that seems consistent is the cars with steel ends and roof have the General American triangle stenciled to the left of the door, but the line work on this stencil is so thin that it's harder to see than the type of roof.
