Re: Fruit Growers Express FHIX 41241-41640 series reefers

These were built by Pacific Car & Foundry beginning in January 1957. They had the so-called "Banana Tapper" major ribs with the top rib asymetrical in shape as it was striahg along the bottom.

These cars signal the end of the "ice age" within the FGE/WFE/BRE/NX system as they were the last ice bunkers cars ordered by FGE.

Can someone give me some information on the builder and construction dates
for Fruit Growers Express FHIX 41241-41640? Seems ART may have bought a
block of them.
