All the box car models have doors that can be made to slide open.

Whoa, back up that boxcar. I don't know about the rest of their kits, but their 50' Berwick boxcar kits I own scads of DO NOT have operating doors. No big deal to me though, since molding them in place keeps the door tracks and door closer to scale. That, and their cars are flat out gorgeous, and go together great.

The 1944 AAR cars have seperately cast doors because they offer Superior and Youngstown style doors for the kit.
They're not sliding doors in mold of the Athearn/MDC hideous claw style crap but they are separate parts and can be modeled with the door open if one choses to.

Nope, sorry. Berwicks are too late for me so I didn't even consider them. AAR cars all have doors that can be made moveable. I've built most of mine that way.
