I can not completely confirm them, but I believe that both the yellow and blue Chessie System examples do exist for the 40ft. Open Hopper model from AHM.  The blue example appears in the thin styrene tray and appears to mirror a Bachmann release. I would expect the blue Chessie example is a Taiwan-made clone of the Kader-Bachmann tooling and decoration and was part of AHM's offerings in the 1980s.

The original production runs of AHM's hopper were made for the company by Rivarossi in Italy. Left is an example of the Peabody car, also found in AHM's line, but this one is packaged for sale by Rivarossi for the European market and is fitted with their NEM type couplers.

Next, AHM imports a similar car made by Kader in Taiwan. Beyond the origin markings on the car's underframe, the giveaways between the Italian and Taiwan cars include metal wheels and separate openning hatches on the Rivarossi example, while the Kader-Taiwan car has plastic wheels and non-operating cast-on hatches.
