Re: URTX 35521 was MDT reefer

Bob does his photos in batch runs, so if you know you will at a show he attends in 3 to 6 months in advance, that is the time to send him a note. Batch runs can be rearranged with enough notice.

Thanks to everyone for the information.
Either I overlooked that one (sort of unlikely... I did a BUNCH
of damage to my bank account during my walk through the URTX folder!
;> ) or it was one of the empty slots in the folder.
If it was an empty slot, does anyone know if Bob's photo will
make a new print if you give them a negative number? Or is it a matter
of once the prints are gone, they're gone?

Thanks again!

thanks for correct identifying this; another feature of the despatch end
was a 5-3-1 corrugation whereas I believe the referenced car is 4-4

The despatch end wasn't introduced that early so if the photo date is
correct, the adjacent car
is probably not MDT

I have Bob's Photo #FURTX 6 of URTX 35521 purchased from him in
Naperville a couple of years ago. It was photographed on 9-14-51 in
Fayetteville, N.C.
URTX 35521 is a General American product based upon the General
American "standard" steel refrigerator first introduced in 1936. The
first cars had articulated hinges and flat riveted ends and roofs.
Later cars, like URTX 35521, had the ends with the rectangular
corrugations (similar to the MDT corrugation, though not the same
to my
eye) in the ends and more traditional hinges, but retained the flat
roofs. These cars were originally leased to the Milwaukee. By the
early 1950s many were being leased to M&StL. Many, maybe all, were
rebuilt in the 1950s with what appear to be Improved Dreadnaught ends
and Murphy diagonal panel roofs. These rebuilds were leased to
companies among other lessees.
