Steam Era Reefers Letter For Southern Pacific

Bob Chaparro <thecitrusbelt@...>

Somewhere I read that the Southern Pacific had reefers on its roster
lettered for the SP and not PFE. As the story goes, these cars were
acquired from the El Paso & Southwestern in the 1920s.

Does anyone know more about:
What service these cars typically saw?
Were they in captive service?
What was the disposition of the cars?

I didn't find anything in the index of the PFE book.
