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

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

Subject: [STMFC] Reefers with "RD" reporting mark!?
Date: Monday, January 25, 2010, 5:08 PM
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?
