A question I have asked before, but never gotten a suitable answer: is there a prototype for the paint scheme on the Carnation reefer?Certainly not on the Athearn body. There was a similar though not identical scheme on a pre-1934 billboard car. I suspect Athearn winged it on that one, possibly using current Carnation advertising.
