A roster of the R-70-23 class reefers is provided as follows:
PFE 459401-459500 (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 1970 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.
