Re: Cheesy Reefers

Hello Bob,

They are WRX reporting marks. Western Refrigerator was the reefer operation of the GB&W, which makes sense give the location of the photo. WRX used AC&F-design reefers from the 1920s, similar to the associated NWX lines. Westerfield and Branchline made kits and there are photos and references in the RP Cyc Vol. 4 as well as in Focus on Freight Cars, Vol. 3 and Steam Freight Cars Reference Manual Vol. 3.
