InterMountain ART Ice Reefer 1964 Orange Paint Scheme

ARM/MPHS Special Run - American Refrigerator Transit Ice Reefer, 1964 Paint Scheme

In 1964 ART made a major change to their painting and lettering scheme. With the arrival of Downing Jenks as the new president of the Missouri Pacific and the Wabash being merged into the Norfolk and Western, ART changed their paint scheme from the traditional reefer yellow with boxcar red roof and ends and black underframe and trucks to reefer orange sides, ends and roof with black underframe and trucks. The heralds, which had been painted as simple black outlines since 1960 remained the same except the Wabash flag fell, being replaced with N&Ws circular herald.

Now, you can own an HO-scale replica of these steel reefers, the only models that accurately represent these cars with their unique lap side horizontal seam with rivets.

These assembled cars are available in six different road numbers; 32096, 32117, 32148, 33016, 33307 and 33429. To note the change in owndeship of the Wabash, on this set of models we lettered the cars with a reweigh location and date of XD 1-65, which was the Wabash’s Decatur, Illinois facility. The build date is 1-41.

Several different car numbers are currently available. Choose one below.
