No MDT book. My reefer madness has been mainly a West Coast
affliction, mostly PFE. The only all-refrigerator car books I have
are Tony's PFE book (naturally!) and John Henderson's CLASSIC
FREIGHT CARS v. 3.

It's definitely a DESPATCH built refrigerator car, but I don't
know which MDT or possibly NRC series
it belonged to. I have photos of other MDT (and NRC) steel reefers
but not this one. Back in the 1980's
and early 1990's Conrail had several MDT reefers painted this way,
all used for company storage at the
east end of the huge Selkirk yard. I have photos of them but I've
never scanned them. I wonder if that is
where this car came from.
Do you have the MDT book?

I recently scanned up my photos from a circa 2000 visit to
Steamtown. Among them is this unmarked refrigerator car. It
appears to be of MDT design. Can anybody help me with a
positive ID, including (hopefully) a car number? I have been
unable to find any references to this car on the Steamtown
site or Wikipedia. I hate untidiness in my collection.
Thank you in advance.
