Gary L. asked about the box cars, and I would like to include the WFE

interesting addition to the SS and DS cars of the era if correct.
Thanks all.
Photos and other documentation show these cars in revenue service as
late as the mid-1950s. And I have a couple of Col. Chet McCoid shots
of a Fruit Growers Express truss rod reefer still in revenue service at
Providence, RI in 10-57.
