Note that the BAR wood reefers are NOT all the same. Some had steel
and this one (below) had wood ends.
Agreed! There were HUNDREDS of
these BAR wood reefers in service throughout
the 1950's. And all SP & UP (i.e. PFE) modelers can use them as well.
1953 - 238 in service
1955 - 272 in service (note INCREASE from 1953 to 1955)
1959 - 136 in service
I've included a photo of the orange repaint. So we can document at least
paint and lettering styles on these BAR wood reefers.
That is the $64K question
Tim. To me this is the most obvious gap in kit availability
reefer-wise or freight car wise for that matter in HO with a variety of
marks and paint schemes. Someone is missing the boat here.
