Based on your constraints (RTR, 50 or 60 ft car), NONE.

Athearn did offer a RTR release of their 85 ft Trailer Train TOFC flat
in late 2006 (ATH 7422x series) in the early Trailer Train paint
scheme which fits your 1960 era. Modeling other TOFC prototypes for
that era will require building and modifying kits.
