D&RGW 30-Foot Refrigerator Cars

Our second release of D&RGW 30-Foot Refrigerator Cars comes "SoundCar-ready" so you can easily add a SoundCar Digital Sound Decoder.

The cars were originally built by American Car & Foundry in 1908. Known as “short” reefers, these 30-foot, 20-ton cars traversed the Colorado narrow gauge through the late 1950s.

Our release is based on the prototypes after they were rebuilt by the D&RGW in 1926, which included new Murphy roofs, altered needle beams, and larger icebox hatches. Other model details include hardware color, reporting marks, order placards, and herald placement specific to each road number.

These ready-to-run models are available with freshly shopped American Refrigerator Transit (ART) Yellow sides, and Boxcar Red roof and end sills. They are also equipped with free-rolling 4'8" arch bar trucks and Kadee No. 714 couplers.
