What kind of car is this?

New guy here. Looking for an identification of the use of the type of car this would be. I got a couple at a local show, partly because I didn't know what they were.

It is a ROCO, made in Austria. that's the only markings on it.

I look forward to your answers and learning more about model railroading.

Probably would have to go back to the 50s and 60s for them---if they were ever used widely at all. AHM had no problem putting out proposed or limited use cars, making them kinda cool in my book.

Which begs the question: if a company builds an HO scale car from a proposed car's blueprint, is the model then a prototype or still a model?
