If one goes back far enough it could be from a cut down Athearn Blue Box 50-ft gon.

P.S. Although I do recall Richard stating nothing could be built from this model.

   You must have misunderstood him. He had a two-part article in _Prototype Modeler_ about all the cars that could be built FROM this model. What he did often say is that the stock model has no prototype. You just gotta work with it <grin>. We even have a Shake 'n' Take model from that gondola.
