Produced by Roco in Austria, this AHM offering is one of a variety of styles produced and sold as a "40ft. Box Car" or more simply as "Box Car" in AHM catalogs. The car carries a $1.98 retail in a late 1960s catalog and $2.98 retail in a 1977 price listing.

A new product review of the AHM PS-1 Box Car is included in the Trade Topics section of the May 1962 issue of Model Railroader. The review states, "the underbody is unusually well detailed with complete brake rigging and simulated floor planking with wood grain."

This car debuts with only the Delaware & Hudson roadname and is pictured below in an ad found in a December 1961 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman magazine.
The 1972 release of the car included revised tooling that featured black plastic separately applied ladders and roofwalk. The door is also noted as being different, according to a release announcement in the October 1972 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman magazine. The 1972 roadnames inlcuded: Reading, C&O, CB&Q, Milwaukee, ATSF, WM and IC. The retail was $2.98 in 1972.

Con-Cor obtains the tooling for the former AHM 40' PS-1 Box Car in the late 1980s.  Above is an ad for the Con-Cor 40' PS-1 from 1989.  You may click on the image to open a larger version for best viewing.
