I have what I think is an Athearn 50' exterior post boxcar (I bought it without a box). It is oxide red and numbered 57869. "Norfolk and Western" is spelled out in a sans-serif font and there is no herald. There is no readable date on the data on the car. I'm curious about what date this scheme came into use. An aside question is what would the prototype build date be for this model?
