Prototype History:
The Association of American Railroads had been establishing design standards for freight cars since the early part of the century. Each new design standard meant higher capacity, lighter, more durable cars.

The Modified 1937 AAR boxcar design was a result of the industries continued search for more freight volume per carload. The real first attempt at a standardized design had been the 1932 ARA steel boxcar with an inside height of 9'-4" . In 1936 the board of the AAR approved the 1937 AAR design with a 10'-0" inside height. This became a standard throughout the industry.

Road Name History: A commemorative car is not associated with any particular company but rather a person, place or event such as a birthday, an obituary or an anniversary.

Brand/Importer Information: This company is also known as Adams County Co. K. Productions. They are known to have commissioned special runs from InterMountain Railway in N Scale.
