No, Eric, "AMC" means

The AMC was a cooperative engineering group set up under the Van Sweringen
ownership of the Erie C&O, NKP, and PM. All four roads shared engineering
information,standards, and it's clear, when you look at a C&O T1, that it's
an outgrowth of an ERIE S-class Berkshire, for instance.

available unless someone did them in brass.

Thanks for the details David. I was not familiar with this type of boxcar.

BTW, does AMC mean All Metal Car?

Thanks again.
