Specific Item Information: In 1924-25, General American Car Company built 49 express reefers for the Santa Fe. They were 50-footers with wood sides, steel underframes and 4-wheel high speed passenger trucks. Most passenger trains of the era has one or more of these on the head-end to carry high-dollar perishables to the Midwest. Seven of the cars were leased for Fed Harvey. By 1926, the time of their first major rebuild, most carried the Railway Express lettering.

Road Name History: Although they may be molded in color, unpainted and unlettered, undecorated products are marketed to modelers who seek to custom decorate their models for private roads and/or road and/or company names that were not commercially produced by any of the major manufacturers.

Undecorated models are frequently also unassembled or only partially assembled and required modelers to be comfortable with glue, paint and sometimes solder in order to prepare their models for display. Materials for these models can vary but often include plastic, pewter and resin. Models may or may not come with decals or other decorations such as plastic signage, railings and ladders to enhance the appearance of the final product.
