Re: LRX reporting mark


The LRX cars were built for DLW in 1925 by ACF. Photos and drawings are in the Car Cycs .They were later leased by MDT to provide protective service for DL&W, and after the war were returned to DLW. While under MDT management, they wore the LRX reporting mark.
In the late forties and fifties, a lot of older reefers were used for shipping canned goods. The cleanliness of the cars may have been more attractive than the insulation.
