Great picture Bob, thanks for sharing.  Note the ladder attached to the roof with rivets at the bottom left of the photo.  I am guessing that it is an ART.

Good, clear reefer photo. Foreground reefer is SFRD 8002, a Class Rr-39 reefer. This is one of 170 cars rebuilt circa 1945-46 from Class Rr-2, -3 and -4 reefers.
