Re: Mystery Refrigerator Car


My guess is its some type of ventilator input. There were a bunch of different designs in that period but I took a quick look at the period car cycs and could find nothing similar. Very interesting photo, thanks for sharing

This photo is from a Raton, New Mexico, wreck on the Santa Fe around 1910.
The refrigerator car has some additional structures on its roof that I cannot identify.
Can anyone identify the structures and the car?
