The paint scheme on this new N scale boxcar was inspired by a custom-decorated Athearn HO scale kit released in 1974.  The boxcar featured the Great Gulch, Yahoo Valley & Northern name and Gulch Route herald to the left of the door.  This was the name of Model Railroader founder Al Kalmbach's O scale layout.  He started building the model railroad in the winter of 1928-29.  To the right of the door was Model Railroader's 40th anniversary logo.

For our 2021 annual car, we decided to have some fun. We kept the orange-and-black paint scheme, but replaced the Gulch Route herald and lettering with that of our HO scale Milwaukee, Racine & Troy staff layout. We put the updated MR logo to the right of the door. 

We partnered with Micro-Trains Line Co. to produce the N scale car. The ready-to-run model is based on the company’s 20000-series 40-foot boxcar tooling. The injection-molded plastic body has positionable doors and a factory-installed brake wheel and running board casting. The ladders and grab irons are molded.

The die-cast metal underbody features body bolster and floor board detail, as well as mounting pads for body-mounted couplers. Plastic stirrup steps are clipped to the side corners. The center sills, crossmembers, brake appliances, and related rods and pipes are a separate plastic piece clipped to bottom of the metal casting. The boxcar is equipped with pin-mounted solid-bearing trucks, plastic wheelsets, and truck-mounted Magne-Matic couplers.

The boxcar, made in the United States of America, is offered in one road number.
