Body Style Information: This Model Power stock car is a Chinese knock-off of the Atlas 40 foot Cattle car that was produced by Atlas in the 1970s. Likely this car first appeared in the 1980s when Model Power contracted with various Chinese manufacturers to replicate various body style from other manufacturers. The mold detail and printing are pretty good, and if you replace the trucks with some MTL Bettendorfs, it will run great on a modern layout.
The models are marked 'HONG-KONG' on the underframe.

This model has previously been produced by Mehano for Model Power. The Mehano models are marked 'Made in Yugoslavia' on the underframe. Though Model Power Chinese re-run uses the same road names and numbers, as well as the same stock number, as the Mehano run, there are visible differences like the number and company plates on the sides.

Prototype Information: 40' stock cars with its steel roof and ends were a common sight in the 1940s and 1950s.

Road/Company Information:
The Burlington Northern Railroad (reporting mark BN) was a United States railroad. It was a product of a March 2, 1970, merger of four major railroads - the Great Northern Railway, Northern Pacific Railway, Spokane, Portland and Seattle Railway and the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad - as well as a few small jointly owned subsidiaries owned by the four.

Burlington Northern operated between 1970 and 1996.

Its historical lineage begins in the earliest days of railroading with the chartering in 1848 of the Chicago and Aurora Railroad, a direct ancestor line of the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad, which lends Burlington to the names of various merger-produced successors.

Burlington Northern purchased the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway on December 31, 1996 to form the Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railway (later renamed BNSF Railway), which was owned by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Corporation.*
