A FATHER DAY'S PRESENT TO YOU FROM ATLAS O!

Ever since Atlas O first introduced our amazingly-popular 40' wood reefer nine years ago, one of the most requested decorating schemes has been Ballantine. One of the most popular brews in the tri-state area, the name Ballantine conjures up memories of baseball, summer fun and the famous Borromean three-ring logo.

By special arrangement, Atlas O is pleased to offer prototypically-accurate models of the cars that serviced the Newark-based brewery of P. Ballantine and Sons.

The prototype cars were leased from Merchants Despatch (MDT) during 1934-1936. The ten cars involved in the lease were numbered 100-109 and carried the reporting marks PBBX, representing the P. Ballantine Refrigerator Line.

The extremely accurate decoration is based upon actual prototype photos and 8 road numbers are offered.

(Note: Reefer will not be available until July 2009. That doesn't mean your father still won't enjoy it as a gift!)
