Lester Breuer
 

Current build is a Santa Fe Reefer kit numbered 32153.  A kit I believe produced by InterMountain for the Santa Fe Historical Society.
I need help with the Reefer, in series 31653 to 33155,  with the running board type , I believe wood and the brake step, I believe metal type.
And, trucks. 
I Thank You for your time and effort to respond.

Bob it looks to me like older wooden cars in front of some newer all steel (ie taller) cars.

Also, by the time that the photograph was taken (1944-46), the narrow-gauge Rio Grande Western long had been merged wit the Denver & Rio Grande (to create the Denver & Rio Grande Western) and had been standard-gauged.

Circa mid-1940s.

Notice the difference in the heights of the two string of livestock cars at the top of the photo.

Maybe the shorter cars are narrow gauge?

Tony thanks, the yellow certainly allows for a canvas to add weathering.  

 Can someone tell me how long these cars lasted; the reweigh date is 1938 and I’d like to move it up to the late 1940’s or early 50’s.
