From Atlas’s announcement (link) below. Not new I’m sure, gotta be the Branchline version, but a very nice model to see. Thanks Atlas!

In 1947, REA ordered 500 of these all new steel express reefers from ACF, in an effort to handle express and parcel traffic. During the same time period, Atlantic Coast Line purchased 50. These cars were added to the front of passenger trains traveling coast-to-coast on all major railroads. These new steel express cars utilized welded construction and a new high speed truck design. They were able to carry both refrigerated loads as well as parcel loads due to their collapsible ice bunkers that were stored away when not in use.

Good post on tinting Passenger Car windows. It’s N scale but the concept’s the same across scales.

I'm sort of old school and make my own sounds but these have a generator sound that turns on randomly just like the prototype. Kind of cool... considering you need whole blocks of these cars, I doubt I'll buy many with sound though.
