I would like to know what reporting marks and color these had. I have never seen a picture and until I asked about this never knew the government had reefers. Would this be a USRA effort?
We are talking about tank cars, Mark. In any event, the "government" purchased the USRA cars but did so on behalf of railroads, and the railroads paid for them. There WAS a design of refrigerator cars created for the USRA but never ordered.
