Re: Ice Reefer Conversions to Mechanical?


I can't immediately come up with the photo, but around 1970 I saw one of those 40' ice bunker reefers converted to mechanical by cutting out a section about five or six feet wide from the A end of the car, and a section of the roof about three feet deep, to mount a Thermo King refrigeration unit.  As I recall, it was either Armour or Hormel.  This would have been on the Rock Island on the Herington-Ft. Worth line.
