There is also an extensive discussion of the Santa Fe’s efforts to rebuild and modernize its refrigerator car fleet. A separate chapter covers Ice Cars from 1908 through 1971. Appendices cover painting and lettering, slogan assignments, roster information and diagrams of selected equipment. The definitive source for information on this important class of Santa Fe cars.
