There were 300 of these PFE express reefers. You can be sure they were

freight trains with less-perishable loads or carried in freights in the off season.

    Very true, Tim, and in addition, PFE was a participant in the Railway Express pool, so that cars were moved where needed under REA direction. They really could be seen anywhere.
