Rushing priority perishables between stations, express reefers were found at the front of the fastest passenger runs as well as on specialized mail and express trains. And when some highly perishable crops such as strawberries were in season, solid trains of express reefers were run, often as second sections of the most important passenger trains.
Walthers is proud to roll out an all-new Express Reefer that's right at home with your flagship streamliners. Based on a series of cars first ordered in 1957, the prototypes were some of the last ice-cooled reefers constructed and were also unusual for the time in that they were built with riveted instead of welded sides.
Each model features a highly detailed one-piece body with separately applied details including ice hatches, ladders and roofwalks. Separate wire grab irons are included for more realistic detail. A complete underbody captures all of the special brake gear needed for passenger service, as well as the bunker run-off chutes. High-speed trucks with metal wheelsets and working knuckle couplers round out the models.
