Re: NKP/MDT reefer

Roger Hinman <rhinman@...>

I have seen this decal and also an older Athearn car with a similar scheme showing a white MDT M4(wood car) with NKP leasing marks. I have never
seen a photo to verify this either.

However, NKP did buy a series of 400 of these cars from MDT new in the 1920s that were numbered NKP 60000-60399; at least two of these were converted to milk service later in their careers, NKP 700-701

So if you want to be safe, you put an MDT reefer on your layout and letter it for NKP. I do not know the proper paint scheme for NKP cars, perhaps that is mentioned in the article you referenced.

Walthers has a decal set for the NKP/MDT reefer, part #72440. Any
photos of this car? The description says "white", does that mean
white reefer or white lettering? I have the NKP Historical magazine
Spring 2000 issue that covers the NKP reefers, but no photo of the
MDT reefers there. The only MDT reefers I turn up are NYC, which I
would prefer not to have on my NKP layout.
