Re: Throwback Thursday: Ambroid PRR Class R7 Reefer

I have a record of a PRR K7A in San Bernardino in 1946. Of course during war time all sorts of unusual things did happen. Also a 1952 record of a Santa Fe stock car being cleaned in Toronto, Canada.

Richard I had the same thoughts about the Broadway Limited K7A stockcar, until I found a document showing one was loaded in S St Paul MN destined for a farmer on the M&StL in Iowa, in my time frame. Despite what many think, stockcars did get off road. A PRR stockcar in Colorado? May not be common, but I suspect it did happen.

Thanks, Ben, I had forgotten about that model. Unfortunately, as I my model railroad is set in Colorado, and as I doubt any PRR stock cars made it to Colorado, I have no use for that car, with or without sound. In a way you help me make my point. I'll amend my closing statement from earlier: If we can have Caswell gons and K7 stock cars, why not R7s?
