This photo can be enlarged quite a bit.

Car built in 1936.

Did any railroads purchase cars of this design?

For more details on this unique lightweight refrigerator car, go to:
--- Railway Prototype Cyclopedia, Vols. 31-32, pp. 211-213,
--- With a follow-up photo of the car after lease/sale to Merchant Dispatch Transportation at Railway Prototype Cyclopedia, Vol. 34, p. 192.
No other refrigerator cars followed from that experiment.
