ERDX 11000 series


Bud Rindfleisch
 

Gents, 
    I'm looking for photos or one photo, of the Eastern States Dispatch 11000 series insulated boxes "with" the circular logo. These cars are lettered ERDX and are the taller of the two series being an inside height of 10'0". I know these existed as I'd seen them in a video of the Nickel Plate running alongside the lower height 10000 series cars, all had the large circular logos. The only photo I have shows the cars without the logo and "refrigerated" lettering but they're not reefers.

Bud, there is one photo of a logoed ERDX reefer in the collection of the New York Central System Historical Society online photo archive.

Plus another at I have a other photo of a logoed car in my files that I got from a website that appears to now be off line. 

The NYCSHS also has many builders photos of non logoed cars along with mechanical drawings of the cars.

Bobs photo sells one of erdx 11002, with the emblem,  his negative  t0370: all rbs on mdt were stenciled refrigerator since many customers for years just wanted an insulated car which their standard refrigerator could fill the bill

Nice photo tim; this car will be involved in a wreck on the Milwaukee Road in the summer of 1968 and be scrapped.

Nothing to much to add other then I always scroll down to see if Tim posted photos.  As usual Tim did not disappoint! 

I will add that even though the war had been over for many years its surprising to see the use of the rising sun.

Tim O, 
    Thanks for the attachment photo, that's what I'm looking for. I'll see if I can get the photo from Bob's Photos. In fact, the only photo I have of an 11000 series car was  from Bob's collection but sans the circular logo.
