Re: FGEX R7 reefer


These are PRR R7 class cars sold to FGEX when it was formed.  PRR drawings are available from the PRRT&HS archives

Drawings are C-40633, C-48069, C-65591

This is the link to the order form    products for sale, then equipment diagrams.

Also See Rob Schoenberg's site has photos and drawings but not of the underframe

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.
