Here's what I got...

IC 50000-50283 7' 3"IH
Blt by GATC 1937

IC 50284-50299 7' 1"IH
Blt by GATC 1937

IC 50300-50499 7' 1"IH
Blt by GATC 1942

IC 56000-56399 6'11"IH (not listed 1959)
converted in 1947 from 52000-55999 series which included wood cars built
from 1916 to 1922 from Haskel & Barker, ACF, Pullman, GATC

IC 58200-58232 7' 3"IH (reduced to 58200-58218 by 1959)
Blt by GATC 1937, original series 50207-50299

IC 59214-59399 7' 0"IH (not listed in 1959; ice service only)
original series 52000-55999 but I don't know when they were converted.

I have a fine 1958 partial scan of MDT #13726, a reefer leased from
the IC and still bearing the IC herald.
IC leased many reefers from MDT and NRC over the years. They had the IC
logo/herald/emblem/insignia/medallion with MDT or NRC reporting marks.
Possibly this is one of those. It would be good to know what MDT and NRC
number series were leased to IC.
