Unicel Reefer Freight Car 

Note: This is a model of a unique 1950 50' car by Pressed Steel Car Co. Apparently there was a shortage of steel after the war, and this car is claimed to have saved 11 precious tons of steel per car. The car-body was built using a laminated plywood construction, similar to that used in the Navy's PT boats and the DeHavilland "Mosquito" bomber. The review states that PSC had plans to build 50 cars per day, starting in 1951, but that only 1, or maybe 2, cars were ever built. The A.A.R. turned down the design, apparently due to lack of woodworking shops at the railroads as the primary reason.
