The book runs 130 pages and has a number of photos of period refrigerator cars, discussions on refrigerator car construction and insulation materials, illustrations, and tests of competing insulation materials used in PFE, Santa Fe and Northern Pacific refrigerator cars. There also is a section on the history of the refrigerator car to that point in time.
