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.

Tex, here is a pic and short vid I made after receiving my MTH ATSF Reefer. It does seem to be scale, and dwarfs most of my semi-scale stock...still a very cool operating car. The pic did not capture it well, but the haze to the right of the ramp is some of the smoke lingering after unload.
