I should have checked my hard drive more carefully... I did have
an image of an SLRX reefer. :-[

From an estate being disposed of at

With hatches the number is
incorrect as it should be numbered in the class RS
A correct class RB , no ice
bunkers, a Sunshine Models kit is shown on Tony
Thompson’s blog. After an internet search
I could not find any model of the
St. Louis Reefer numbered correctly in the RS series.
All manufacture models I found had a class RB number
on a CAR WITH HATCHES. Wondering
if I missed finding a correct lettered St. Louis Reefer
model with a number in the RS series?
St. Louis Refrigerator Car RS reefers that I’m aware of were
SLRX 10000-10399, built in 1922 by MDT with a lease
arrangement from late 1949 to 1954. The Roger Hinman class
number is “M4.”
& 1/51, the ORER listed 200 cars; 4/51 & 1/52 listed
400 cars; 1/53 listed 365 cars; 1/54 listed 57 cars; by 10/54
Menke offers photos of 10086 & 10360 photographed 4/50
& 3/51, respectively.
