One more photo. The wooden GS&F boxcar has a new number - 9502. In supplement to the 9500 from last year.

And perfect for my era, I remember seeing a lot of PFE reefers back in the old days..

Al... and you're on the EAST coast!
Think of the number of reefer blocks headed out of California's Salinas Valley, Imperial Valley, and Central Valley at harvest time!!!

There are photos from almost every major city in North America with a produce depot... showing multiple PFE reefers lined-up delivering produce from the West Coast.

BTW: PFE and the BAR had a reciprocal car-sharing arrangement... with BAR using extra PFE cars to handle the potato harvest, and returning the favor to PFE with BAR cars for the fruit and vegetable seasons.

TT Note: The PFE R-40-10 was the 'next' car proposed by Gold Coast (Oregon) before the tool & die maker they were using passed away.
