Weird? Different is a word I would use rather than weird. Makes modelling them interesting given that they are not cookie cutter versions of US cars!

IIRC Branchline's postwar boxcars, like the ACF/URTX reefers, were in the Blueprint series.

I believe these are Blueprint cars, but they may be from the Yardmaster series. I just received a couple of ACF/URTX reefers from Atlas; they came in Branchline boxes.

To anyone's knowledge, has Atlas released or announced intention to release cars from the Branchline Blueprint 40', 10'-6" boxcar tooling ? I have built a few of these (Branchline) and loved the seperate ends, roof and doors. Great for all the weird Canadian cars I want anyone know what they will call these if the do make them?
