Re: Another dry ice car

In 1936 the Santa Fe rebuilt 13 cars from RR-11 series into dry ice cars. 6000-6002 were modified with three compartments and three small side doors. These were modified again in 1949 to look like a traditional reefer but with two compartments accessible through the door on the side. These were assigned to Spencer Chemical dry ice service. They were rebuilt into other cars in 1953-54.
6003-6006 were modified into three compartments with three side doors. They were sold to Spencer Chemical in 1949 and became SCJX 300-303.
6007-6012 were modified into four compartments with 4 side doors. They were rebuilt into RR-50 cars in 1951.
Sunshine kit 68.1 models the 6000, 68.2 models 6001-6005, and 68.3 models 6007-6012. Charlie Slater did the masters.
