Wow Lee, that is some big difference. That is going to be a beauty when you git 'er done!
Will it be road specific or a generic reefer car?

That's some seriously nice work Lee. What's a Reefer? I work on the railway in the UK so I was wondering how it compares with anything we do or have used.

Rick. Thanks Wood Reefers are mostly Ice bunks. These were phased out by the 60s. Thanks for the complement

Mick. Andy said it all

Peter. Thanks for stopping by and the complement I’m glad you like it it means a lot from you so I must be doing something right

Ralph. Thanks for the complement sounds like a man with experience with a Reefer lol

Tim. Thanks for stopping by and the complement and your right about that and knowing you made it makes it better

Guys
Thanks for the likes and complements I’m sorry I’m not building Military at this time I just don’t have the interest at moment. I need to get some things done on the layout I’ve neglected for years

Lee, really impressive work on the conversion. Like the door gear especially when against the side walls. I can see your really enjoying doing it .
If it wasn't a refrigerated unit you could have had Yorkshire Tea on it .:smiling2:
