The Real 97770

Built in 1924, PFE 97770 was a class R-30-12 40' foot wooden reefer. The R-30-12 class cars were a redesign of the earlier PFE car. These newly designed cars included higher doors and steel roofs. Almost 12,000 reefers in this class were built. Between 1938 and 1940 the R-30 cars were targeted by an agressive reconditioning program. The rebuilt cars were renumbered from 91022-98718 and saw use well into the 1960's.
