Athearn Ready-To-Roll 40-foot boxcar
Although standard-height 40-foot boxcars were on their way out by the 1970s, many railroads kept them in service, even if it meant adding Automatic Car Identification (ACI) labels and updating data panels.

Athearn has updated its line of legacy Model Die Casting/Roundhouse 40-foot boxcars for the modern era as well, adding plastic knuckle couplers and metal wheelsets, along with finer molded detail on the sides.
