Don Cook's - Cook Orchards Car
The Fox Valley Division of the NMRA offers a unique refrigerator car kit in HO scale. It is based on an original design by the late Master Model Railroader Don Cook. Cook Orchards was a major industry on Don’s Great Northern Railway Spokane Division layout and he had many of these cars in service moving apples from the Washington State orchards to the storage facility. As a member of a group of Northeastern Illinois/Southeastern Wisconsin modelers, Don made sure his cars found their way to other railroads in the operating group. This is an Accurail kit made in the USA and the artwork faithfully replicates Don’s original design. The kit includes decals for road numbers 100 through 156.
The cars sell for $23 per car, Shipping and handling within USA: $7.50 - one car; $14 - 2 to 4 cars. Money order or check payable to: Fox Valley Division, NMRA.
