Utica Club 2001 refrigerator car body shell; shiny chrome; maroon lettering and graphics; no brake wheel, doors or door guides; half ladders. The original owner purchased this body shell from Frank's Roundhouse in the late 1980's. It was probably a Kris production reject, as there is some paint sagging on one side. In Greenberg's, there is a Utica Club boxcar variation described as "Chrome; maroon lettering; maroon plug doors."
