R-70-24 Reefers

A roster of the R-70-24 class reefers is provided as follows:


	SPFE 459501-460100

	Golden West numbers:		VCY 25000=25399 (mixed with R-70-20 & -22 class cars)


These 50'-10" mechanical refrigerator cars were built by PC&F in 1971 and featured 4269 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 nominal 50' usable inside length for loading. Harry Wong has a good writeup regarding the release of an Intermountain model of this class.

When rebuilt, repainted and remarked as Golden West Service cars, they were mixed with PFE/SPFE class R-70-20 and -22 cars as VCY 25000-25399.
