Reefer Madness

Greetings Blog Followers,

This past week with all the cold weather and snow seemed like a good idea to get the reefer fleet out and run them while cleaning their wheels and track with my track cleaning cars. The reefer fleet shown in the below two videos encompasses from the days of wood side express and standard reefers through the 1980 Conrail 359020 57' Mechanical Refrigerator. The consists are not historically accurate but hey this is my railroad.

Four New York Central EMD FTs are using all of their combined 5,400 HP to muscle this reefer train consisting of 40' standard  reefers and 50' express reefers.

A Lehigh Valley Alco FA-FB-FA  consist lugs a string of 50' and 57' refrigerator cars through Empire City Station..
