After the Second World War the Railway Express Agency rebuilt a number of troop sleepers into express refrigerator cars. The late Lou Cross took this photo in Los Angeles in the early 1950s. I originally posted the image on my web page http://coastdaylight.com/reareefer.html almost twenty years ago.
