In 1955, the Santa Fe Railroad introduced the RR-56 class of mechanical reefers.

Based on the previous RR-54 class of Refrigerated Boxcars, the RR-56 Class incorporated lessons learned from the RR-54 cars to build and operate its first large fleet of mechanical reefers.

The RR-56 were classed as “All Purpose” MTC (Mechanical Temperature Control) cars by the Santa Fe Railroad.

The fleet numbered 200 cars in total: numbers 2000 – 2188; and 2500 – 2510.

Delivered with SFRD reporting marks, these were changed in 1963 to SFRP but retained their same car numbers.
