Like Tony, I was mislead by the ORER listing showing "steel underframe" reefer. This is usually code for "wood sided car" in the ORER. In the GT listings the brine reefers are listed that way, and the AAR car type is RAMH too. I didn't look at note JJ in the ORER that finally tells you the cars had 8 overhead ice hatches.
But evidently not the all-steel ones. GTW's parent CN did have all- steel 8-hatch cars and so listed them.
