NKP has a model kit for an ACCL-SCL car used in such service:

ACL Class E10 Heavyweight Combine
This car carried Atomic Energy Commission material in the 50's & 60's from Georgia to Iowa and Colorado.  This car ran on the ACL, NYC&StL, L&N, C&EI (Sometimes PRR via Cincinnati) and transferred to the CB&Q at Chicago.  Kit features etched brass sides with separate window sashes and doors.  Also includes styrene roof, ends, centersill and floor; plus resin custom-cast steam ejector A/C, large battery boxes, oversize water tank and many other unique detail underbody and roof parts.  The Commonwealth top equalized roller bearing 6-wheel trucks are included.
ACL #666
SCL #4267

In 1956 the IC modified two cabooses 9791 and 9792 for the AEC in their Centralia shops.  They were returned to the railroad and the modifications removed in 1960 and the cabooses were placed back into service.

I have no other information on what the modifications were.
