Re: Reefers with "RD" reporting mark!?

I guess this maybe plausible but there are entrees for SFRD. I have not had time to check the car numbers however.

The RD #'s are 14425, 3535, 8681, 14296, 9459, 31979, 7549. 10385, 31100, 15211

Bill could RD be shorthand for SFRD? Maybe some car numbers match up?

I have been loaned a copy of a Fruit Growers Express Co. "Icing, Ventilation and Heater Service Record Book" dated May 16-June 2, 1950 and recording the cars iced on the ACL at their Sanford Fla. icing dock, which I am going to scan.

Several cars with the reporting marks "RD" are recorded as well as the predictable ART. PFE, MDT, NRC, and SFRD plus of course FGE/WWFE/BRE/ FWD/CX. I can find no RD in my ORER's for 1942 and 1953.

Can anyone shed any light on what company these car were owned by and what they looked like?
