OSHX 1, Orchard Supply Hardware box car, San Jose, CA

I got the model of the title (my blog post). It has a real box car. See the "Orchard Supply Hardware" section on Wikipedia. Oh! this is a prototype modeling. Does anyone know the circumstances behind the release of this MDC-Roundhouse AAR 40-foot boxcar? The coloring is very similar to the 25th anniversary model of the New Jersey Coast Model Railroad Club released in 1976. I imagine the club car imitated the "OSHX 1" model.

Well, what do you know!  (I'd mention this over on RyPN and see who responds!

Orchard Supply was famous at one time for railroad-themed calendars.
