Claus, PFE had a very small fleet of meat reefers, about 300. Not at home so can’t check the book as to numbers or era.

   Yes, but two points: first, this photo is years before those cars, and the car, PFE 9092, was just a plain reefer.
    I was once told that a significant traffic category for meat packers was lard, and that might move in regular reefers (serving as insulated box cars).
