Re: PFE reefers

I'm not sure how widely they were applied, Tim, but I believe that they fell into disfavor because they had a habit of working loose and falling off the cars, thus endangering any traincrew or other bystanders. I believe the remaining medallions, as PFE referred to them, were victims of the WWII scrap drives, as were many other wonderful old pieces of equipment.

A surviving UP shield, WP feather, or SP "sunset" medallion would be a neat piece of railroadania to own.
