BR>Before mechanical refrigeration, ice was the primary method of cooling perishables. Loading blocks of ice into the rooftop hatches of solid reefer trains would be a daunting task were it not for the construction of icing platforms that brought the ice up to car height for speedier icing and re-icing of the trains. Icing platforms on the major refrigerator routes were often quite extensive - some measured 50 car lengths. The ice house was usually attached to the platforms to provide an ice supply that could be accessed quickly.
Designed for modular construction - any length can be created by combining additional platform kits, Raised platform that will accomodate two 40' reefer cars, Lower level platform for side door loading, End ladder, Overall dimensions: 37L x 4W x 6H
