Athearn Stock Cars

Part of a grab bag at a garage sale. Although not “contest quality”, the quality of this model is suitable for the majority of model railroads and these dioramas.


The only changes were the couplers and some paint. The lower board on the door is white; the floor is white with weathering representing the condition of the floor of a stock car. It is assumed a lime wash is used to clean the cars. There should be additional lime staining on the lower sides of the car.


I had an “as-it-came” version for comparison. The differences are more noticeable “in-person”
