Bob you need to move your questions to another group - Some of
didn't exist in the STMFC era which ends with 1960.
I could help you, but not here. ;-)

Comments and questions from David North...
I model 1985 and was re-reading Stephen Priest’s boxcar
book and remembered that most of the reefer classes that Bob
mentioned were converted to boxcars around 1979.
Rr-54 converted to Bx-201 over 9
Rr-56 converted to Bx-202 over
67 cars 1979-1987
Rr-60 converted to Bx-203 over
6 cars 1979-1987
Rr-61 converted to Bx-204 over
15 cars 1979-1987
Rr-65 converted to Bx-205 over
40 cars 1979-1987
Rr-66 converted to Bx-195* over
600 cars 1979-1991
*Bx-195 class consisted of Rr-66, 69 & 71 conversions
So I’d be happy with any of the above classes, provided the
body mods were minimal.
Does anyone know what body modifications were made when the
cars were converted?
