O 40' Rebuilt Wood Reefer
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
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
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!)
