Re: Door Arrangement On PFE Reefer

PFE and NP bought cars with these combination swing-plug doors -- the
PFE class was R-40-28. Tony Thompson probably can tell you the logic
behind the doors. It was not repeated on subsequent orders.

I noticed the unusual (to me) door arrangement on the PFE reefer (PFE
11303) pictured on the following link:

http://www.railcarphotos.com/PhotoDetails.php?PhotoID=26183

The door appears to be a sliding plug door with a row of hinges to the
right of the door.

Can anyone provide more information about this door arrangement and how
common it was?

Thanks.
