ROLLING STOCK

60'RAILWAY EXPRESS AGENCY REEFER

DETAILS:

My first rescued car!
This car was basket case when I got it. This all wood car was left out in the weather for long time. The roof had to be totally rebuilt since all the details had been broke off. Reglueing of all the body parts and replacement of the end sills was required. Since finishing the car it has been used as a test bed for creating a functional reefer with thermoelectric coolers. This has been an ongoing engineering project. I have not achieved required performance yet. Trucks and couplers from Mountain Car Company.
