The really specialized equipment isn't around but E&C makes some nice
gons & coal cars in NS.  There is also the Athearn GP-60 in 2 schemes
and a third (Southern) coming soon.
~~tom!

In years past, Ambroid made a tobacco car from a Southern prototype.  It
was a wood craftsman kit.  It was HUGE- about the length of an Athearn Hi
Cube box, with skylights in the roof to facilitate loading/ unloading.
I call mine the "Cancer Car".  The kit was all wood, except for the
plastic disks for the skylights.  A bear to finish since wood is not
metal.  Some day I may duplicate the car using styrene strip and sheet.

They may well be around yet- I haven't looked.
