Hello Vern....I always thought these cars were owned by the railroad but leased to REX....much like half space on some full baggage cars. RR baggage at one end, Railway Express Agency stuff on the other....Tom

TOM - HFM -  
 
This one, best to see an aging OFFICIAL REGISTER. Note this REFRIGERATOR type. These presented distinct Operating issues.

Ouch!
 
Yep......this could certainly be cause for extreme caution in icing, especially when in such "juiced up" environs as Sunnyside!

Though the RPO is but a "bit player" in this magnificent PRR view from 1950, it was simply too good not to share here.......<G>
 
Man, talk about sheer magnificence!
