Re: URTX refrigerator car

The photo I have shows a freshly painted car in 1936. It does not look like
a wood roof to me. Outside metal roofs were sheet metal over wood were they not?

Tom I have a photo of that car, URTX 97136 lettered for the CGW, just as you describe. It appears to have a wood roof, can�t really tell. The blt date is 5-23. The ends are wood, painted a dark color (FCR?), which based on Dennis�s comments, says the car has not been rebuilt and thus has the �wood roof�.
