I think you might have a silver PRR Express reefer that Weaver did for me with red and black printing. I had the car done with four famous PRR passenger train names. I think the names on the cars were, The Broadway Limited, The Red Arrow, The Duquesne. and GG-1 Service. Each car, had three different town names on it were the train stopped. Like Jeannette, Greensburg, and Latrobe. Another one had and Torrance, Bolivar and Johnstown. The Red Arrow had names Cresson, Gallitzin and Altoona. The GG-1 Service one had Harrisburg, Lancaster and Philadelphia. Sorry, But I do not have a picture of this express reefer.
Hello Jim, it has been a while. I think the last time we spoke is when I ordered my DAP NS ABBA OCS f-units and An UP 9000,
No these two cars I have are defiantly not reefers! They are from the same molds as the Weaver PRR Merchantise car you had made with box car doors and all my other 50 some Weaver box cars. Plus I do have three Weaver steel body reefers so have a direct comparison.
Have not found any prototype pictures. But surmise that just maybe Pennsy actually did this in the early 50's when SS passenger consist came in. These may have been paint to somewhat the SS cars. Silver bodies with the red band for front end "Express Service", only a guess.
