Hi, my name is Evan and I inherited my Grandpa's old train collection, and I'm having trouble identifying one train. I've attached some photos below, so hopefully this will help. Thank you to anyone who has help!

That looks like an Athearn PS 4740 "blue box" covered hopper......is it sitting on the box it was in?

It appears, from the picture on the box that Old hobo has identified
as an Ahearn car, that it is a kit that you would assemble, unless that has
already been done. What is inside the box?

Yes. Is the model sitting atop its own box ? If so, it says what it is, on the box end... And, do you have the trucks and couplers for it ? Aside from this I've no idea what you're asking about..

I'm pretty sure that what you have is a Bev-Bel kit. They took Athearn pieces and added their own paint schemes.

Google "Athearn bev bel union Pacific sugar hopper" and you'll get one or two similar pictures. Apparently there are other road numbers too.
