    I have been trying to recall that brand. Somehow it does not stir any memories.

    There is the exact same model on eBay right now: https://www.ebay.com/itm/115355930885?hash=item1adbbfd105:g:kZIAAOSwVYJiGY5K

    This is Varney tooling. The model was also offered by AHM after they got the Varney molds; there is one of those on ebay too with the AHM box. Looking up the road number online also brings up some newer images showing that Athearn made their own version of this exact road number.

    This Model Railroader thread has some more information about the company: https://cs.trains.com/mrr/f/88/t/50617.aspx It seems like it was relatively short-lived, especially if AHM managed to pick up the tooling.
