Atlas O now offers the perfect companion structure for its widly successful
billboard reefer series - the icing platform and adjoining ice house.

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.

    additional platform kits.
