All About Postage Stamp Trains
Mechanical refrigerator cars began replacing ice bunker cars in the early 1950s. Many of the first mechanical reefers were rebuilt steel ice bunker cars. Roco's model is of a generic design from the earlier days of these cars. As they had with the rest of their modern cars, Roco used solid-journal Bettendorf-type trucks instead of roller bearing trucks (a mistake made by nearly every other manufacturer at that time).
