The second photo shows the other side of the car. There were only two of these cars ever made. These were pre-production models that A.C. Gilbert made for Planters as they were trying to get Planters in some sort of joint project that never happen. As a result they were never put into a production run.

Road Name:Post
Road Number:C2001
Year Introduced:1962
1961-62 Gilbert once again broke from their standard where all items carried a 5-digit catalog number. They produced three engines and three cars, many of which were uncataloged. The Post Hay-jector box car was uncataloged in 1962 with two variations. One lacks the Hayjector mechanism while the second, and more common unit, has the Hayjector mechanism. The two photos show both side of the C2001 car. As you will note in the photo the lighter hay bales are reproduction units while the darker bales in the car and the one beside the light bales are original hay bales.
