    I kitbashed these from Model Power reefers. The Erie had 2 kinds of milk cars, one with a reefer type door and one with a sliding wood door. These are the later. I chose the MP car because the ends were similar to the Erie cars. Roofwalks are Microtrains.

    Those are Micro-Trains reefer trucks. The Erie put express reefer truck (very similar to the MT trucks) on their old milk cars and used them as express box cars for baggage and news paper delivery. I just had to cut off the extensions on the ends.
