    Question PRR Silver Boxcar/Reefer/Ice Car

    Hi. A question for Pennsy experts. I've just picked up a model PRR boxcar I can't identify (sorry, no picture). It's 40', silver, narrow metal door, what like like four valves on the roof, two at each end, "PENNSYLVANIA" in black lettering (no logo), #498350. A caption says "ASSIGNED TO JERSEY CITY" and "ICE CAR". Does anybody have any info on this vehicle?

    Found this on a PRR forum:

    https://prr.groups.io/g/PRR/topic/re...n_the/25143647

    It has some information on the very car you have a model of. It appears to have been a former ATSF RR-23 class reefer that went to the PRR after it was wrecked.

    Definitely a PPR ice bunker car then (RF looks closest). Just need to find a reference to silver paint.
