Re: Western Road Reefers In Canada


PFE and WFE for sure. Trackside Around Ontario, 1955-1960 by Don McCartney has both on CN trains in Toronto. There may be others but I cannot make them out. The PFE cars appear yellow, double herald, the WFE appears to be yellow, wooden.

Bob, Drew,

I believe that CN was independent and not part of the US pools.

You MIGHT find any of the reefers listed. The question might be better phrased which would be most likely?
That leads to the need for greater specificity. What cargos were being shipped?  What is the season being discussed? I could rationalize pretty much any of the reefers listed based on specific cargos being shipped from the US.

A question from Drew Bunn...
Just wondering if anyone could tell me which of the western roads' reefers I might find on a Canadian National train in the 1950s. Santa Fe? WP? GN? Was CN part of the PFE/WFE/FGE pools? All I seem to find is information on the CN reefer fleet.
My interest is in Ontario and the Atlantic provinces.
