Preco electric fans
(HO scale)

Preco fan plates are a common detail on reefers with ice bunkers. The hardware came into use on ART reefers in 1946. PFE began using them on new R-40-26 reefers in 1951. A tread on the car wheel transmitted power to an alternator that operated blowers under the floor racks near each end bulkhead.

Digital artwork was sized from prototype photos. Many thanks to Patrick Hodina for creating the CAD files to print.

The parts are 3D prints from Shapeways, printed with the Fine Ultimate Detail material otherwise known as FUD.

48 fan plates for $20.

These will help you detail 24 mechanical reefers. Shapeways charges flat processing and shipping fees. Combining orders may not increase shipping costs.
