An brief article on the history of these cars, along with a more lengthy description on kit-bashing one, appeared in the November 1983 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman. A drawing of the car appeared in the November 1964 issue of Model Railroader.
From the RMC article I gathered that the eight hatch Canadian Pacific reefers were a bit different than the CN reefers.
Does anyone know how these Canadian Pacific reefers differed?
