@Ed Kapuscinski,

I like the IC Death Star boxcar, but I believe that these cars are too late for those of us who model the early- to mid-1980s.   :(

Looking thru rrpicturearchives, about the earliest photo I seen was 2004, and the cars were recently painted

I think the Grey IC with the deathstar logo is way past your era aswell... might even be into the 1990's...

Yeah, they're lovely cars and done nicely, but waaaaaaay past my 1975 end target. I'll fudge up to 1980 on rolling stock if it appeals to me, but these are too far out of my era. :|

But if the "new" Intermountain 50' hi cube matches their description (with proper ends) It will be perfect for all of you 1970's/80's guys  :D

Hopefully it is updated from the LBF version, would be a nice consolation...
