ScaleTrains Trinity 82' Mech. Reefer
Author: MrMRL

An HO scale freight car model I realistially thought I'd never-ever see mass-produced... Below, a few random iPhone 14 images of the HO scale ScaleTrains 82' Mechanical Reefer for BNSF...

Those models look great They really did a good job with them.  Even better without graffiti.  

The 72' Super Reefers were a definite game changer for the perishable business.  As example, claims went from 5% to zero (during the first two years of operation). And, the icicles were inspired by the reefer-roadrailer train, that BNSF operated.  The decals were kinda pricey, so they weren't included in the last order

I have 4 or 5 'N' scale cars on order, a couple of them with sound.  Be nifty if the refers units have status lights like these.

Unfortunately, ST posted on one of their Facebook feeds that they won't have the reefer status lights due to space in the N Scale cars.
