Available On: January 1, 2014
This 51’ UP/SP Pacific Fruit Express mechanical reefer with rib sides and single plug door is painted with orange sides, black ends and aluminum roofs. The logos, heralds and lettering are all black. It was built in April 1964 and carried produce through the late 1970s on Barber Roller Bearing trucks. During this period PFE used mechanical reefers almost exclusively. These came equipped with Trane diesel motors to control the flow of refrigerants and run the Mechanical Refrigeration System. The “LD” stenciled on the door signifies that it is a load divider car with a compartmentalized design.
