Bachmann HO-Scale 50' REA Express Reefer
Bachmann#75704 Road# 350
Refrigerated rail transportation revolutionized the North American produce industry in the early 20th century, allowing fresh commodities from the west to be sold for the first time in the east, and vice-versa. To expedite the delivery of these time-sensitive goods, railroads attached specially designed Express Reefers to their priority passenger trains. One or more of these cars could usually be found at the head end of the consist, in front of the baggage and passenger cars. Using trucks designed for passenger speeds, this practice allowed the produce on board to arrive at its destination much faster than it would on a standard freight train.
