*These 70-ton Plate C cars were considered bunkerless refrigerator cars or insulated box cars and carried the mechanical designation of RBL or XLI, respectively. They were assigned to temperature sensitive commodities such as dried foods, canned goods, jar goods, drinks, packaged foods (rice, pasta, cereals), pet foods, nursery plants, seeds and xmas trees. PC&F (now known as PACCAR) had it’s beginnings making railroad logging cars. But the company has a varied history: they were involved in making the armour for Sherman tanks during WW2, OEM of heavy duty trucks (Kenworth c. 1945, Peterbilt c. 1958), and of course, specialized in refrigerator car manufacturing & repair, finally exiting the railroad OEM business in 1984. It continues today as a one of the largest class 8 truck manufacturers worldwide.
