This model is an operating caboose, in that the brakeman pops out. The model was produced in 1957 in only one variation. Like the #935, the catalog illustration shows the car with white lettering when in fact the lettering and grab irons are yellow. The rubber brakeman on the rear of the caboose is the same one used on late #977 and #25031 center cupola operating cabooses.
