1:64 Scale 57' Mechanical Refrigerator Cars Based on Actual Drawings
In the 1960’s, railroads’ aging ice reefers were replaced by fleets of modern Mechanical Refrigerator Cars. As manufacturers like Pacific Car & Foundry and Western Fruit Express developed more efficient ways to keep perishables fridge-fresh when transported by rail, these modern diesel-powered cars became a common and colorful sight on America’s rails.
Based on actual drawings from the mid-1960’s, the American Flyer 57’ modern reefer is designed with brake equipment positioned low on the ends, short side and end ladders, and no running board on the roof. A perfect compliment to the many American Flyer modern diesels and scale cylindrical hoppers.
