Our company helped with parts and service for the railroad mechanical refrigeration on the
Reefer Box cars that were originally built starting in 1959 through about 1974. These cars
were equipped with a Detroit 2-71 engine coupled to a Delco 12.5KW, 15KW or 20KW  
alternator. All of this provided power to a condenser compressor and evaporator unit on
board in the "A" end of the box car. Prior to this technology the cars were loaded with
crushed ice from ICE HOUSES located about 300 miles apart . As new technology has
arrived these generators are now available to the world. We have a huge inventory of parts
and units...We are the authority...WE are the OEM  "THINK DEUCE"
