The #24569 Industrial Brownhoist Crane Car was produced from 1961 through 1966 and, according to Greenberg, has two variations, however Ted believes there are three. Greenberg states that both variations have an unpainted gray plastic flat car body with Pike-Master trucks and couplers. The two variations listed in Greenberg are one with an unpainted black crane cab while the second variation has a cab that is painted black over either a black or gray plastic cab shell. The version shown in the photo, however, has a flat car body that is painted gray over a black plastic body. The crane car cab is unpainted black plastic. Photo #2 is of a standard model produced in 1965 and 1966 which came packaged in a red & white "ALL Aboard" box. During the same period some #24561 Crane Cars were accidently packaged in "ALL Aboard" boxes numbered #24569 (for more information see the entry for #24561 on this web site).
