Re: color MDT reefers in the '40s
The photo I'm referring to is LC-USW36-603 taken by Delano in Apr 43; there are four met cars side by side:toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
ERDX 9149, MDT 6382, MDT 17424, MDT 5242; MDT 6382 is the car that is freshly painted. The car was just over six years old at this time but had been released in late 1936 in the "white" scheme.

Roger, glad you're still with us.
you're referring to the second photo Don Burns references, right? Which car is freshly painted?
This batch of color photos retains red color - check out the border of the clock in the photo with the ends of 5 box cars.
