From the prototype model standpoint, the biggest issue is that the boxcar is advertising Shock Control DF, but the craters on the interior are not, at all restrained!

The answer is simple.  They’re Athearn boxcars.  The top, sides, and ends are one piece, they lift that piece off the underframe, the load is removed, and the body piece is replaced.  Done!

Exactly! How the heck could the crates be placed that way? you couldn't get the 2nd one in if the 1st one was halfway across the door! Of course, my lovely wife did come up with a possible explanation - the crates could have been built in place.  All well and good, but then how the heck do you get them out?????

Crates too large to be placed that way? Assuming they fit thru the door, one should be opposite the opening.
