Like Bruce, I picked up one of the URTX reefers at a good price in
Atlanta last Saturday. I got the URTX/Milwaukee 1952 repaint. Not being
a reefer expert, I was wondering:
A. Is this scheme correct for this car?

B. Does it need a metal roofwalk (or is it running board)?(I know it
needs AB brakes)
Its a running board, and no, the AAR rule required "other than wood"
running boards after 1944 only on new cars; older ones could (and did) keep
their wood running boards for many years.

C. Are there any other changes or upgrades besides what Byron mentioned
in his review?
Not that I'm aware of.
