Re: Meat reefers

Thanks for the LCL reefer info.  

In the next week I am going to take some time to do a bit of “research” with regard to if an LCL reefer service was operated on the Gridley Branch — ATSF Burlington District - Eastern Division.  

Cheers,

Unfortunately, I model a little known Santa Fe branch line that once operated in east central Kansas. Meat reefers on this 50 miles of track would have been a rare event. Most likely if one were to arrive on the line it most surely was a very lost or somehow mis-directed car.
