Overview

Rapido is pleased to offer the Santa Fe RR-56/60/61 Mechanical Reefer in N Scale.

In 1955 The Santa Fe Railroad introduced the RR-56 class of Refrigerated boxcars. Based on the previous RR54 class of Boxcars, the RR-56 Class incorporated lessons learned from the RR-54 cars to build & operate its 1st large fleet of Mechanical Reefers.

The RR-56 were classed as “All Purpose” MTC (Mechanical Temperature Control) cars by the Santa Fe Railroad. The fleet numbered 200 cars numbers 2000 – 2188, 2500 – 2510 in the series. Delivered with SFRD reporting marks, these were changed in 1963 to SFRP but retained their car numbers.

In 1958, Santa Fe built the RR-60 & RR-61 Class of Reefers. These were additional cars built to the same standards as the RR-56 class but carried different insulation & Identified as Super Insulated All Purpose Mechanical Temperature Controlled cars.
