ICE REEFER

Posted March 7, 2007

We are looking for an Ice Reefer for historical display. We would prefer a SFRD; however a PFE or even a mechanical car would help our display and provide insulated protection for storage of our archives.

If you have any information on the location of such a car, we would appreciate the help. A car that has been set in a field for storage would also work if it was in fair condition. The closer to southern California the better for transporting.

If you have such a car, or can provide any information that might lead us to one, please send an email to Craig Bass with "Responding to request for reefer info" in the subject line.

Thank you very much!

 

BLUEPRINTS OR DRAWINGS

Posted December 30, 2006

I need to find out what kind of engines they were using in Salem (Oregon) around 1982. They were Burlington Northern's -- I think they may have been an SD-40 or an GP-38 could you shed some light on weather I'm right or not I want to build an exact replica of the ones I used to load. Then the next thing I will need is some blueprints or drawings to go by so any help would be greatly appreciated as where to get this information.

Thanks

Posted May 2, 2006

Mike Higgins is looking for photographs of the following lines in southern California: Santa Fe's Elsinore, Escondido, Fallbrook, Perris (San Jacinto) and Temecula branches, and Southern Pacific's Folsum branch. Can anyone help him out? His email address (posted with his permission) is mchiggins@verizon.net.

If you have any photos of the Fallbrook branch that I don't have on this website, I'd love to see them too.
