Re: Why bright colored reefers?

Tim O'Connor


Making them "stand out" makes sense - everyone in the yard aware that the loaded
cars carried PERISHABLE lading, so maybe this aided expedited handling.

I have been wondering about whybright colors were used on reefers.  Was it to make them stand
out in the yards to help get special handing?  Bright colors looked "cleaner" for food
products?  Some other reason not to use the usual FCR colors? 
All I have is a couple of possibilities. Anyone have an actual answer?
