Hi Mr. Dumond,

Seaboard and ACL express refrigerator cars, as well as Seaboard express ventilator cars, are nicely covered in the Railway Prototype Cyclopedia series of books. These books are available from RP Cyc Publishing Company, PO Box 451, Chesterfield, MO 63006-0451. RPC #7 has an extensive article on BR and BS express cars, which includes photos of Seaboard wood express refrigerators and ACL steel refrigerators. RPC #8 has photos of ACL and Seaboard express ventilators. I can't recall how much each issue goes for (around $25.00), but if you're interested I'd be happy to e-mail Ed Hawkins and find out for you.
