For those that care about prototype accuracy, it should be pointed out that these kits are pretty bogus.  The car body is the InterMountain PFE R-40-23, so the ends, doors and underframe are not correct for an R-40-20.  The class R-40-20 was built in January to April 1945, so they never would have had the pre-1942 Overland banner UP medallion.  Yes, InterMountain has sold 48 different car numbers of these as RTR cars, but that just shows what the market likes, and not what happened prototypically.
