Re: IC reefers

NRC was set up as a float of cars available to NP and IC since they had different seasonal needs
and this became a fairly nice business model. NRC was acquired as Tim states by MDT/NYC
in the late twenties. I've seen arguments whether MDT owned NRC or NYC did. In all the NYC Annual Reports, NRC is listed as a separate
company just as MDT is(until their merger in 1962)

In 1936, MDT moved its offices to Michigan Ave in Chicago and shared those offices (and managment team) with NRC. DSDX was
thrown into the mix in the early fifties. Sometime thereafter, IC began leasing MDT as well as NRC cars

successor of the Northern Refrigerator Car Co..

Hope this helps, Tim Gilbert

I'd be glad to hear from someone who knows more about this.

Happy holidays,
