Quote from the Atlas website:
"A joint effort from General American and Evans Products, these AAR class bunkerless refrigerator cars were produced beginning in the early 1950s. Featuring two large horizontal panels flanking a 7’7” door, these cars had a very unique appearance due to the horizontal rivet strip that joined the panels. With fewer seams than a standard box car, these cars were supposed to be less prone to rust and leakage. By 1959, over 1,000 of these boxcars were produced...."
The HO people lucked out, and Atlas produced a big line of these cars in many road names...they are even available on Walmart's website. *Gad*
What are the chances of getting these manufactured for us O gauge people? I would be good for at least 8 of them.
