Thanks,
Maybe Intermountain could use some of the tooling for their
R-40-10 as a start for a plastic 1932 ARA Box car? ;>

Is the Thompson Reefer book still in print?

on
the old Athearn steel side reefers, which are models of the PFE
reefers. Were the prototype cars based on the 1932 design?
Both statements are essentially true. Regarding the relationship
of the
PFE R-40-10 class to the 1932 AAR box car, see Thompson, et. al.
p. 161.
