Re: This image and the next three


So…… [might be a silly question of mine]

Were these cars mainly used to ship the stored ice from the warehouses to the distributors in the warmer months of the year?

Its hard to see from the angle………

Are the loading doors similar to regular hinged reefer doors………. or sliding plug doors?

Best to ya,
