The Swift reefers in the photo have doors with only 4 hinges, which stands out to me. I think most reefers have doors with 6 hinges. Can anyone tell me the difference? Were the four hinge doors lighter weight or were the hinges more heavy duty? How many reefer cars had the 4 hinge car? I assume different manufacturers built the different doors. Thanks
