Thanks for the memory!  I had the same B&O Timesaver 40 ft. box car in HO thanks to Athearn.  This was in 1962 and cost $1.69 cents more than the regular line of box cars which retailed for $1.49 at the time.  

When I joined the U.S. Army Transportation Corps in 1964 after high school graduation I gave my HO to my best friend (RIP) who sold them with his HO to help finance his entrance into two rail O scale.  No regrets to this day other than I really miss the huge 200 plus lb. guy.

What would be really neat: A solid string of the cars with different numbers as if they'd just been delivered to the B&O from the factory, so fresh infact you could still smell the paint!

Enjoy your Timesaver car!
