This model is based on the Pacific Fruit Express R-40-10 class reefer which was built in 1936 & 1937. This reefer was a very successful design for PFE and the 4,700 cars that were built constituted one of the largest orders ever for refrigerator cars.

Features Include:

  • True 1/4" dimensions and details
  • Die-cast ladders, stirrups and grab irons
  • Weighted chassis
  • 50-ton Bettendorf trucks
  • Prototypical painting and lettering
  • Simulated Aluminum finish on 2-pack cars
  • Scale 33" wheels and scale couplers (2-rail)
  • Minimum diameter curve: O-36 (3-rail)
  • Minimum radius curve: 24" (2-rail)

Please note: Atlas "O" scale couplers can also be used on both 2-rail and 3-rail versions.
