57' Mechanical Refrigerators

History:
Between 1964 and 1966 Pacific Car and Foundry built three versions of 57' mechanical refrigerator cars for Pacific Fruit Express. While these cars look almost identical, there are small changes between the series such as exhaust stacks and rivet patterns (though ever so small). The Red Caboose car represents the R-70-14, built in 1964, the R-70-15, built in 1975 and the R-70-16, built in 1966. The car also closely represents the R-70-17 through -19 series of car, the main visual difference is in the basic door lever design.

Pacific Car and Foundry also built cars of this type (with some variation) for ART, BAR, Erie, KATY, Maine Central and Northern Pacific. With mergers and splits you can find these cars in many paint schemes besides the as delivered schemes. SP and UP both had many different schemes after their split and since the merger more UP variations have appeared. Burlington Northern has painted their cars, BN green, orange and white and since the Santa Fe/BN merger more schemes in mineral brown have appeared. The prior mentioned paint schemes listed illustrate that many paint variations on this car can be found for many roads.

And after 34 years of service, many of these cars can still be found doing what they were originally designed for, keeping products cold or frozen.

N Scale 57' Mechanical Refrigerator Cars are available as decorated Ready To Run Cars.

Stock Checks:

Inventory is a fluid commodity.  It changes by the hour (sometimes by the minute). To retain our pricing structure we maintain stock levels designed to turnover 6 times each year. We cannot guarantee stock status till we have an order in hand. All product is subject to prior sale. If we confirm that we have it, and, while we are waiting for the order it sells, you would be upset that we did not hold it.
We used to hold items but learned a VERY EXPENSIVE lesson. When we held items for customers’ orders, the order never materialized 80%+ of the time.  We lost out on the orders placed while the item was on hold.  Also we wasted staff time that could have been used to pull actual orders.
Since we are well known for finding older stock the fact that it may not be on our shelves at this minute does not mean we can’t get it. So, as we spell out on our terms pages, we don’t do it anymore.
You may, however, call in and we will tell you if the items are available and if possible attempt to locate what we don’t have while you are on the phone.
