Subject: [STMFC] FGEX R7 reefer
I am working on an Westerfield Models R7 FGEX Refrigerator, kit 11661, to be numbered in the 45645 to 46270 series. A photo of a car in this series appears in Railway Prototype Cyc., Vol. 15, p.75. My question is on the underframe. I see stringers on the underframe in some of the photos; however, no mention of them in the instructions. I am asking if some can direct me to a drawing so I can or provide information to clear up the discrepancy so I can get the underframe correct. I do have access to the 1919 Car Builders Cyc.; however, I could not find an answer there.
Thank You for for time and effort to help.
