Proto 2000 does actually make this type of car, but as far as I know there isn't a C&NW painted version (Though there is a car with a plate on it similar to the one you're referring to).

On the CNW modelers yahoo group they said it is made by lifelike and said to look in the Walthers catalog but not finding them

After some more searching I found that there are Life Like CNW hoppers like the ones you're referring to, but they are painted gray instead of green and do not have the plate for the logo.

I think Atlas has their own version. Don't know about the plate though.
