Merchants Despatch Transportation Company operated one of the best known and most visually striking freight car fleets in the United States. Beginning in 1882, they ordered large numbers of Wickes' Patent 34' refrigerator cars from multiple builders. These cars were modified and upgraded numerous times and lasted until 1922.

Modeling 1909 is NOW Just More Joyful - 34' Refrigerator Car

About a week ago the HO-4000 - Merchants Despatch 34' Refrigerator Car arrived at my door. It is first rate. For someone modeling 1909, this car is a nice fit. There are only a few parts as it comes with a lot of nice detail. I should have mine completed in about a week. NOW, to do a little research and see if there are some private refrigerator car fleets I could morph l using the HO-4000 as the basis- DAH

Merchants Despatch 34' Refrigerator review

Remarkably detailed, prototype-faithful model with multiple decal options. I will enjoy building this. My only wish is that it might have been printed in white medium, rather than dark grey, so that it was decal-ready. Otherwise, it is an exceptional model. MY recommendation to potential buyers is to add the couplers and trucks if your budget allows.
