reefer history


Have comprehensive stories ever been done on ART or MDT rolling stock
(maybe in one of the society magazines)?

I'm surprised that an ART article never appeared in Ed Hawkins
Cyclopedias considering ART's St. Louis area RR sponsership. Drips
and drabs have appeared in several places including Westerfield and
Sunshine data sheets and Ed's Cyclopedia.

Roger Hinman provided a lot of MDT information in MM and I have the
book "Great Yellow Fleet" but I'm still a little fuzzy on MDT roster
(relative numbers of each car). I think I've been overestimating the
numbers of wood sided cars with metal ends.

Ed (and Ted) are good at finding pictures I haven't seen before from
such high priced sources as the Smithsonian Pullman collection.
