Pacific design shops has the wooden reefer kits......many years ago, little engines had an old fashioned wooden boxcar, with the arch bar trucks......but I'm not sure if it's still available or not ?

Not a boxcar, but here are plans and assembly instructions for a wooden gondola.

I can recommend the Pacific Design Kit. Nice parts, very good drawings and notes. It’s been a fun build so far.
