PFE 40' Reefer

About the 40′ PFE Reefers:

Pacific Fruit Express (reporting mark PFE) was a railroad refrigerator car leasing company that at one point was the largest refrigerator car operator in the world.

The company was founded on December 7, 1906 as a joint venture between the Union Pacific and Southern Pacific railroads. It began operation on October 1, 1907, with a fleet of 6,600 refrigerator cars built by the American Car and Foundry Company (ACF).

PFE’s assets were divided between the UP and SP when the company was split on April 1, 1978. It is now a UP subsidiary.
