Has anyone produced models of the the milk cars used by the Bowman Milk

Did Wanzer use milk cars also?

Another express milk car commonly seen in Chicago was Mars (the candy
company). As far as I know, the Mars cars were usually handled by the
Milwaukee in freight trains only, however.

In the '30s until ?, the Milwaukee also had its own Dairy Express Reefers,
all converted from a classic series of very low slung 1912 express cars
built and designed
