Re: REA Wood Express Reefers

Wood cars were used into the 60's, well beyond my cutoff date of 1957. you
need to check if the paint scheme is appropriate for the 1948-50 timeframe.
I think the green with the diamond is slightly later than 1950, annd I think
932-5485 is pre 1940 but my RPC's are at home so I can't comment for sure.

When did REA quit using wood cars? Specfically were they in use in
the 1948-1950 period? Or were they steel by then?

Thanks, Paul Hillman
