Hi all -

I have a several MTH operating reefer cars that have the simulated dry ice smoke that push out a small rectangular crate upon activation. Does anyone know of any suitable substitutes ?  A few of the reefers are short 1 crate.

mth crate

Did MTH make different versions of the crate?  I have some that say Fresh Fruit (not California Fruit) and don't have what looks like white bottles of milk (?) as in your photo.  Instead there is just a metal plate presumably to give it weight to slide down the unloading ramp.  Dimensions as shown.  I weighed it at 3.4 grams.  I suppose you could cram in additional lead weight if it needs to be heavier.

How many do you need?  If you think you can make these work, I have some extras you can have for the shipping cost.  It's more than 1/4" thick so has to go USPS First Class package which would be $4-5 depending on your zip.
