Note 1

There is some controversy over whether 5-8541, Schaefer Beer, was ever packaged and sold as an AHM car.

It is the only lionel beer car with "ROCO" written on the bottom of the floor.

If you have this car without a box, then it must be considered Lionel.

If you have a box that clearly Identifies it as other than Lionel, please send a pic to

The only documented producer of this car was Lionel
