Re: Swift 3300

The message arrived in my inbox yesterday afternoon at 1:30pm, though it was sent on April 4th when the list were having a discussion about the rerelease of the Rapido meat reefer I assumed Steve would have a more informed answer than I about the Swift reefer, and I was getting ready for this morning.


I’ve been having this type a problem for some time. Apparently my Internet provider or my email provider sees messages as spam and delays them.


As for the Swift cars in question, the only photos I have of 3300 series car I got from Steve, so not much help.

Hello Steve,


I am in a similar situation from time to time, as it was the case with exactly that Email. I got it yesterday. Please have a look at the exact date: -it has been sent FIFTEEN DAYS ago! But I got it yesterday...


Best regards

I am currently getting my emails with a delay of 12 or more hours.  This one wasn't received here until 3:04 AM today.


By 1950 in the ORER, the 3300 series reefers extend from 3300 - 5199 with 1602 cars, in total.  But known photos show that they were not all alike in appearance.  There were more than a few 4 hinge doors in this range and some had inset by tabbed side sills.  Many looked like Sunshine resin kit 24.x, if you can find one.

In light of the recent discussion about the Swift 2500 series reefer that will be released by Rapido, I was wondering if anyone had ever kitbashed or produced a 3300-series reefer. This series seems to comprise the most-numerous wood Swift reefer.
