I just looked at Google maps to see where Seymour WI is.
I found the old depot.
Guess what is parked beside the depot?

Seymour also had at least one leased refrigerator car from the Northern Refrigerator Car Company.  It's pictured on Page 105 of the book "Billboard Refrigerator Cars."  Not surprisingly, the paint scheme is quite different from the car pictured above.  It was assigned to Seymour Canning in 1929 according to the caption.

Nice find on that photo!

That set in the second link also has a nice shot of GB&W 1306, 36' double sheathed boxcar.
