This action caboose is one of the rarest of all post-war cabooses. The reason being that it was not sold separately even though it was listed in the 1958 catalog. In 1958 Gilbert had an abundance of 977 cabooses and sold them in sets and as separate sale items. The only know source for the 25031 Action Caboose was part a very limited number of 1958 Meteor sets as reported by Dennis Bagby in Greenberg's Guide to American Flyer S Gauge Volume III Sets, First Edition. The 1958 set with an action caboose was advertised as having 25031, however, nearly all sets contained the 977 caboose.
