All
Some inspiration perhaps:
A couple of photos of the ERDX - Eastern States reefer that Clover House covers in their TT Dry Transfer line.

If I recall correctly, Eastern Refrigerator Dispatch served smaller markets in the Northeastern US...
Meat products (both hung and in brine) to distributors... and grain to feed-lots.

The Clover TT-scale transfer (previous post) is for the later car... circa 1960s.
This would work on almost any typical RBL with the "V"-handled door.

Clover House also has the older car circa-1924, but not in TT.
