K762-8028   Springfield Root Beer WS Reefer  
    $44.95 ea.    

In the early days of railroading, wood-sided reefers were developed to transport perishable goods over long distances. This gave people the opportunity to enjoy fresh produce, dairy products and other items that need refrigeration. Railroads and other private companies also discovered that these cars were a great place for advertising. Reefers became traveling billboards. In simpler times, people could sit by the rails and watch the trains and their ads go by.

This is a made up reefer, The Springfield Root Beer Company of Buffalo never existed. This comes from the early band that Neil Young and Steven Stills were in for some of the 1960's, the Buffalo Springfield. In 1967 they released their 2nd record, Buffalo Springfield Again. The artwork on this car of "Springfield of Buffalo" was taken directly from that album cover.
