The TMX reporting mark has a note in the 1953 ORER that says “See Mars Incorporated and Union Refrigerator Transit Lines, a Division of General American Transportation Corp”.  The TMX listing under URT notes that these cars are to be returned to the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific RR”, which is also interesting.  In 1953 there are three number series, 1000-1249, 1250-1399 and 1400-1999, for a total of 74 cars.    They are called out as between 41’6 and 43’ 5” external length, with internal length between 32’ 9 and 33’ 2”.
