Thanks everyone for your replies. I wish I could find video of the MTH reefer and Lionel Merchandise car but I researched YouTube and I could not find any.
Barry, if I purchase the merchandise car that's what I want to do with mine. Can you drop me a quick email (in my profile). I want an operating car which goes along with my Lionel Armory on my new Army base which can deliver crates of Ammo. I will re-paint the box car shell with drab green and Army markings.
