Re: MAINE ''SPUD'' CARS( BAR/MEC ) & NH

The reason there is no RW&B is none of the BAR reefers carried this
scheme, only the RBs which
probably were of little use in California traffic. This may have been
the reason the blue and white scheme with the brown spud
on the older wooden cars didn't last long but were repainted orange.
All of the new purchased cars came in the orange
scheme

frame or two on a red, white, and blue car in a sea of reefer yellow
and orange??????
