The 1940 Northern Pacific Freight Equipment Diagram book lists the 90000-90799 (with basket type bunker) and the 90800-90999 (with divided basket type bunkers) as 42’ 70,000 lbs. capacity steel underframe cars built in the South Tacoma shops in 1931-32.

Could someone provide some background to this NP reefer.  When built, series, etc.  it’s part of a photo I’m using in a book.   Image at MP East Yard in Kansas City 1943
