Prototype information : In 1967 The National Steel Car Corporation started building 70 ton 50' Box Cars specifically designed for shipping rolls of newsprint from paper mills in Canada to Newsprint Companies throughout North America.
A total of 3,592 cars were manufactured between 1967 and 1971 for six railroads. The vast majority of these cars remain in revenue service in 2008.
The cars have an inside height of 11' 0" enabling newsprint rolls to be loaded in two tiers to provide maximum protection to the bruiseable newsprint rolls, the cars have smooth interior walls and cushioned underframes. The cars feature an aluminum roof, NSC-designed corrugated ends either smooth or an exterior-post Youngstown 9' wide plug door.

Road Name History: The Duluth, Winnipeg and Pacific Railway (reporting mark DWP) is a subsidiary railroad of Canadian National Railway (CN) operating in northern Minnesota, United States.
A CN system-wide rebranding beginning in 1995 has seen the DWP logo and name largely replaced by its parent company. The DWP line is CN's connection between International Falls and Duluth, Minnesota, where the railroad connects to a short stretch of the former Duluth, Missabe and Iron Range Railway before following the former Wisconsin Central (both now wholly owned by CN) to Chicago, Illinois.

Brand/Importer Information: The Canadian distributor for Life-Like products, Hobbycraft Canada, saw a missing segment in market for Canadian model prototypes, and started producing a few Canadian models that were later, with a few modifications, offered in the US market with US roadnames. At a later point Hobbycraft Canada was renamed Life-Like Canada.

When Life-Like was acquired by Walthers, Life-Like Canada was spun off and renamed True Line Trains. They are known as manufacturers of prototypically accurate HO- and N-scale locomotives and freight cars.
