Re: [ATSF] SFRD 50 foot wood reefer question


It must be an RR-10, built in May 1931. Some of the RR-10s were modified into RR-17 and RR-26 by adding more insulation inside, but externally they would have appeared virtually the same. Some received steel roofs and two received steel ends. The live list shows 80 RR-10s in 1945, 4 in 1947-1956, and 2 in 1963.  10 RR-17s operated 1942-56 dropping to 1 in 1963. The RR-27 numbered 10 from 1940-56 and then dropped to 1 in 1963.

Obviously one of the Santa Fe's 50 foot wood sheathed reefers, but can
anyone identify it's original class? It appears to be in mofw (company)
service now and they usually were reclassified into a Wr-xx class but
it's illegible in this photo.
