Atlas O now offers the perfect companion structure for its widly successful billboard reefer series. This ice house building kit and the companion adjoining icing platform - the Atlas Model 6905. BR>Before mechanical refrigeration, ice was the primary method of cooling perishables. Loading blocks of ice into the rooftop hatches of solid reefer trains would be a daunting task were it not for the construction of icing platforms that brought the ice up to car height for speedier icing and re-icing of the trains. Icing platforms on the major refrigerator routes were often quite extensive - some measured 50 car lengths. The ice house was usually attached to the platforms to provide an ice supply that could be accessed quickly. Designed for modular construction - any length can be created by combining additional platform kits, Raised platform that will accomodate two 40' reefer cars, Lower level platform for side door loading, End ladder, Overall dimensions: 37L x 4W x 6HCondition: Factory New ( C-9) Operational Status: FunctionalOriginal Box: Yes (P-9) Manufacturer: AtlasModel Number: 6906MSRP: $65.95Scale/Era: O ModernModel Type: Building KitsAvailability: Ships in 3 to 6 Business Days.The Trainz SKU for this item is P11437926.
