I just checked the files in my archive. I don’t have anything on CGW reefers.

Subject: [RealSTMFC] CGW reefer


Looking for information about CGW reefers, circa 1900-1910. Apparently there is an old CGW reefer body in Oelwein. If I recall it was purchased by an Italian immigrant in 1907 and made into a home. Then was later rented out to others. Now some folks are looking to preserve/restore the body. All that is know is that it was CGW reefer.


Does anyone have any information and/or photos of CGW reefers from that era?
