Ted Culotta did an excellent book on the 1932 ARA standard boxcar... the 1937 AAR design could also do very well with a book of its own!

item # description
CP249645 CP "Spans the World" scheme (suitable for all # series)
CP250582 CP "3-step block" scheme (suitable for all # series, introduced around 1950)
CP250583 CP "script" scheme (suitable for all # series, introduced around 1960)
CNR481536 CN white maple leaf scheme (all # series)
CNR475916 CN straight green leaf scheme (all # series, introduced I think mid-1950s)
CNR474605 CN angled green leaf scheme (all # series, introduced around 1957)
CNR521749 CN angled green leaf "Canada's Largest Railroad" scheme (introduced around 1957?)

Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe 136000-136499
...
Built: 5-1936


Marquette, do you mean they were built in May 1936 or something else?

If yes, how was it possible - if the standart was adopted in 1937?

The design was adapted as a standard in 1937, but the ATSF cars you mention were built to the design - which actually originated in 1935-ish; you can consider the ATSF cars as a "proto-standard"...

Anther question :)

What is the difference between "Chesapeake & Ohio 3000-3299" and "Chesapeake & Ohio 3300-3499" ?
It seems to me they are identical...

They are the same in appearance - the difference is just that the 3000-3299 were built by American Car & Foundry, while 3300-3499 were built by General American (GATC).
