During the Gilbert days of S-gauge trains, there was a basic standard to their numbering system. In 1956-57, Gilbert produced seven freight cars that broke from that standard. Prior to this time, all non-operating cars carried a 900 series catalog number. These seven cars were part of three lower priced catalog sets in 1956-57 and were part of a few uncataloged sets. The 800 series cars were not sold separately. This model has three variations: two are unpainted and one is painted. The car in the front of the photo is an example of the painted variation.
