RJ Dial asked:
"...are you able to determine what the variants 1,2 & 5 are referring to in terms of details for configuration?"

Atlas went through the trouble to tool different variations of the 1932 ARA steel boxcar as follows:
#1 - Long tab body, Murphy Panel Roof, 4/4 Dreadnaught Ends
#2 - Long tab body, 11 panel flat riveted roof, flat-riveted ends
#3 - Short tab body, Hutchins radial roof, 4/4 Dreadnaught ends
#4 - Short tab body, Viking corrugated roof, Buckeye ends
#5 - Long tab body, 11 panel flat riveted roof, 4/4 Dreadnaught ends
#6 - Long tab body, Viking corrugated roof, 4/4 Dreadnaught ends
#7 - Long tab body, Murphy panel roof, flat riveted end
