R-70-21 Reefers

A roster of the R-70-21 class reefers is provided as follows:


	PFE 458101-458700	(later transferred to UPFE w/ same numbers)
  


These 50'-0" mechanical refrigerator cars were all built to the same basic design by PC&F in 1969 and featured 4050 ft3 capacity and a 10'-6" door opening. Note that this body style is sometimes referred to as 57', however, the mechanical refrigeration eqipment takes up space on one end of the car leaving a 50' usable inside length for loading. Harry Wong has a good writeup regarding the release of an Intermountain model of this class.
