Re: Athearn/Roundhouse pickle cars

Cyril Durrenberger

Athearn/Roundhouse is advertising what appears to be a run of the old Athearn pickle car.

1. Does anyone know how accurate this model is for any sort of similar car?

2. Does anyone know if any of the lettering schemes are accurate? All of these companies seem to have existed at one time or another and marketed pickles (did RIchter Vinegar Co made pickles), but it is not clear that they owned or leased pickle cars. In addition it is not clear that these lettering schemes are similar to ones that were used if they owned pickle cars.

3. Richter Vinegar Co. did have at least one wood vinegar car, but it was not like this type of car.
