Steel reefers

Ted Culotta <ted@...>
 

Does anyone know of a resource that points out the differences between the
early steel reefers of the major refrigerator lines? What I am trying to
determine is, using the PFE's R-40-10 through R-40-25 series as a baseline
(or, in other words, using the Intermountain HO kits as a baseline), what
other cars can one model and with what parts. For example, what would one
have to do to make one of the Intermountain kits into a prototypically
accurate version of the MDT reefers built in 1947-8? or an IC steel reefer?
etc.?

Thanks,
Ted

Ted, I'm not aware of any article or other resource that compiles this
information, though you might want to see if John Nehrich has posted
something on the Renssalaer RR web site. I have this information for some
cars, e.g. early IC and ART clones of the R-40-10s, and could derive a lot
more from my photo collection if I had time. Alternatively, I could scan
some of the photos and YOU could pore over them!

Thompson, Church and Jones "PFE" has almost everything you might want to
know about these reefers. 2nd edition just came out.

Not yet posted. But if you come up with anything, I'll be glad to add it.
Since this is still in its preliminary, I'm concentrating on just listing
all the kits, and trying to find basic information, such as car number(s) on
the model and the paint scheme, so I can give some basic guidelines. But
over time, I expect this to become a sort of bulletin board with people
weighing in with their opinions, knowledge, ideas on modifying kits to make
them more accurate, and kitbashing ideas. - John

Ted & all,

I put together a chart of most of the dimensions for PFE Steel Ice reefers
(I also did wood reefers) taken from the ORER's. It has been part of my
clinic handout, and I believe it may have made it into the back of the 2nd
edition of the PFE Book (my copy is not here at work). I suppose I could
convert it to Excel and post it in the Files section of this list if
enough people had an interest. That would at least give you a clue about
the size of the various PFE models (assuming they are correct).

Regards,
Dick Harley

Dick,

I'd be interested in such a file.

Dick,

I'd also be interested in your PFE stats file.
Could you possibly save it as an older Excel file say 5.0 ?
Thanks,
