RF Refrigerator Cars

Bob Chaparro

Hello, Bill -

Recently I was reading a copy of your article, The Wood Sheathed Cars of the

FGEX/WFEX/BREX Freight Refrigerator Fleet: 1940-1953.

In the middle of Page 16 it reads, "On that same date the Pennsylvania Railroad Company sells FGEX 2,676 "RF" type 36-foot reefers, which had previously been under lease. On the same day a lease takes effect for FGEX to use 264 New York, New Haven & Hartford refrigerator cars."

My question is, what is an RF reefer?
