Hi Bob,

I believe the train is westbound, so the car might be empty or have a back haul of some sort.

This is another photo link from the Chicago and North Western Railway Archives Art Collections.


It shows an REA express reefer mixed in with non-express reefers. Assuming this express reefer was loaded, how often would such reefers appear in freight trains rather than in passenger trains?
