Non-Surviving SFRD Reefers
Here are a few SFRD ice bunker reefers that did not live on in Santa Fe M of W service. Perhaps some of their brethren did make it that far.
I’ve listed the classes, the original number of cars in the classes and the last years cars of those classes were on the Live List.
If you are modeling these cars the photos are useful in determining some of the external features and stenciling on these cars during their last years of service.
SFRD 13952 (Rr-53) 800 cars in 1953, 2 cars in 1977
SFRD 13133 (Rr-51) 1,000 cars in 1952, 2 cars in 1977
SFRD 12458 (Rr-51)
SFRD ???? (Rr-45) 500 in 1948 and 1949, 1000 in 1938, 7 cars in 1973
SFRD 7728 (Rr-36) 360 cars in 1945 or 1946, 12 cars in 1973
SFRD 16811 (Rr-23) 1,500 cars starting in 1937, 2 cars in 1974
All of the above classes were rebuilt from earlier reefer classes.
