This group of 50 cars had a long service life. Rebuilt in 1926, these cars were the standard "short" reefer of the 1920's thru 1950's. Several of these car bodies still survive. Our model reflects the lettering style after the 1926 rebuild.

To complement our new Legend Series of 2 1/2" scale locomotives, RMI now offers a line 3' narrow gauge freight cars and cabooses. Our boxcars, reefers, and stock cars feature steel bases, steel internal body bracing, laser cut marine plywood substructures, and newly developed, custom milled, hardwood timbers and tongue & groove planking.

All doors have a steel core to minimize warping and are suspended from ball-bearing rollers. The highly ornate lettering and hardware found on turn-of-the-century (20th that is) rolling stock are faithfully reproduced.

All cars have removable tops and can have optional fold down seats. Combine these new offerings with our broad range of flats and gondolas and our 5 very popular caboose models, and you can assemble many truly impressive narrow gauge trains.
