Insulated Boxcar

For everyone out there who wanted a boxcar for Xmas, I give you a red box. This isn't based off any boxcar I've ever seen, but rather that 'boxcar' feel. I challenged myself to build a very light simple boxcar that doesn't look like a turd on wheels. It's very light and very strong. Unfortunately those 1x3x5 bricks in red are not too common, but they are available. This is meant to add to my c.1950s consist as it is a bit short for a modern boxcar. I am very much interested in how everyone feels about this boxcar; what works and what doesn't. Enjoy and Happy Holidays!!
