Note that, even though S-Helper Service did fantastic work in making their models as accurate as possible through extensive research, the Swift reefers used the wrong reporting marks on the car. Instead of "SLRX" they should state "SRLX". Sources for this information are "Classic Freight Cars, Vol. 3: 40 ft Refrigerator Cars" by John Henderson (ISBN 1-882608-01-1), and "Refrigerator Car Color Guide" by Gene Green (ISBN 1-58248-165-2). S-Helper Service also produced a three-car set as SHS #00804 (see second photo by Dick Kramer).
