These models were produced from 1946 through 1953. They went through the same transitions as #650, with the same warping problems (see that entry for the details). In the photo are examples of a red and green 1946 #651 Baggage Car both of which came with silver lettering. Later models have white lettering. There is one reported variation of the #651 that was made in 1953, which has a tuscan-red body instead of the typical red or green body color.
