40' stock car announced by Walthers?

The current issue of MRH has an announcement of a rerun of "Walthers Mainline" 40' stock cars coming next month. The graphic shows a six panel truss and a vertical slat door, no photo. I'm not aware of any previous cars like this by Walthers or anyone else; anyone know what it is a "rerun" of and what prototype it is, if any? I can't find anything on the Walthers website...
Thanks, Otto K.

The old model is HO scale.

Yes Chris, there is an HO car on their website with dreadnaught ends that looks like the N scale graphic, down to the build date. So that would be new tooling for a transition era car?! What prototype if any?

N scale graphic?

Also "Walthers Mainline" is all HO as far as I know. Also p135 of MRH is still HO on the left side of the page. As usual there are no Walthers N scale listed.

Was your question about the HO car?

No, it was about an N scale car; wishful thinking. The formatting on my iPad looked like this was under N scale; it's not. Too bad, we could use another stock car...
Thanks, Otto
