Re: Dry Ice Corp reefer, DICX ?? 218? in May 1943
Great selection of photos Tim. Given the illegibility of the reporting mark in the Delano photo, no.208 in your email may even be the same car (with different lettering in some places).toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I spent a little more time reading the 1953 ORER for Pure Carbonic Company, and found the listing for 100 cars in series 160-259. The cars were 25’ interior length, 6’ 1” IW and 6’ IH.

a fleet of insulated box cars (RB bunkerless refrigerators) and those ran into the 1970's!
