    I have a shot of the only Super Therm car I've ever seen from the early 1980s. They didn't last too long and CN shifted from railroad reefers and let the truckers have the business.

    Do you have TS Modeler?

    No Paul I don't have TS, I never knew about the CN CP program until I started the B&O car when I was picture looking. I was surprised to find a picture of the ST car when normally all I saw was model kits. I like those quirky cars like the mandiran express. Which I surprised to know it was a one of a kind car. Then there is Paper and Beef cars as well. Must give the CP credit they came up with some intresting cars.

    From circa 1956, there are ice reefers in the BLWZT Conn River set.

    I have a shot of the Super Therm car I took back in the 1980s but it's one slide among 800! I did come across a print I took of the CN reefer with the apple on the side. The paint held up really well on the car for being 14 years old. Also have a slide of the CN newsprint car taken in the early 1980s.
