With bold symmetry and modern aesthetics, few pieces of rollingstock communicate ‘contemporary’ as strongly as the Trinity 64’ TRINCool Reefer
The modern reefer is a contemporary vindication for the perishable trade of yore when railroads moved carloads of perishable traffic by the thousands. Speaking to this heritage, the ARMN reporting marks have reference to the American Refrigerator Transit Company, a refrigerator car line formed in 1881 via a joint venture between the Missouri Pacific and Wabash Railroads. Now in the care of Union Pacific, ARMN reefers are often seen in hot schedule Q Trains, which is the UP’s designation for premium manifest traffic.
ExactRail is proud to offer the third release of our Phase I Trinity 64’ TRINCool Reefer! Replete with detail, ExactRail’s modern reefer includes separately applied release valve rods, the safety chain on the A-end platform, reporting marks on the truck side frames, etched metal filler caps, fuel tank gauge with pad printed read-outs, separately applied and painted temperature box, and precision micro-tailed huck bolts.

Union Pacific /ARMN ‘As Delivered’ paint scheme:
ExactRail is proud to offer the third release of our popular phase I Trinity 64’ TRINCool Reefer in 12 all-new road numbers. This model has over 15 unique painted colors. (And you thought the Trinity reefer was just a big white car!) We would be surprised if any model train manufacturer has given more attention to matching the number of subtle variations of color on a freight car as we have to the Trinity Reefer.

Union Pacific/ARMN Repatch Scheme:
Around 2014, Union Pacific began relocating the reporting marks and car numbers of Trinity 64’ TRINCool reefers to a place much higher on the car side—presumably, in an effort to keep them from being masked with graffiti. ExactRail is proud to offer this interesting iteration for the first time! Every road number offered in this set of paint schemes has been verified as having received this re-lettered scheme.
