PACIFIC FRUIT EXPRESS OPERATING ICE CAR
|This car was produced from 1955 through 1957. It was built to accompany the #352 operating ice station accessory. It was sold both with the #352, and separately. It is interesting that Lionel chose to base the car on a boxcar instead of a refirgrator car. The roof hatch is on a moving rocker, that the accessory could easily slide open. The side of the car also opens to remove the ice cubes once they are inside. The car is made with a Type 2B 6464 body. It is unpainted, orange plastic with black, heat-stamped lettering. Most of these cars had four lines of weight data printed on the opening ice hatch. However, some, more rare versions have only three lines of printing. It came with die cast, bar-end trucks and operating couplers on both ends.
