Lest this be thought a WW II phenomenon, there is a photo of a
PFE reefer being loaded with mail at LA in the 2nd edition of the PFE
book, page 424. It's a Morris Abowitz photo from the 1960s.
Not only that. The late Terry Metcalfe's UP Modeler, Vol 1, shows photos of the consist of the UP Fast Mail in 1957 in Nebraska. Included is SP 5713 box car fitted with steam lines in this case so one might not consider it to be a "plain" box car.
