What makes you say the Rapido model is incorrectly lettered? The model is an excellent rendition of a General American meat reefer. And you say that Cudahy leased GA reefers, which is true. Just about all photos I have of Cudahy reefers are from the 5501-6250 series, which are GA cars.

Does anyone know whether or not the CRLX 1501-1600 series (which was leased from GA) is identical to the Rapido reefer? I have a Rapido Cudahy reefer, but it is incorrectly lettered as a car in the 5501-6250 series. I'm wondering if the reefer can be saved by simply renumbering it.

Thanks,
Phil
