The #973 Operating Milk Car was produced in 1956 and 1957 in only one variation. The package box contained the car, a white metal platform, a black milkman, and the #712 Special Rail Section Control with push button. Note that normally milk would have been transported in a reefer, but A.C. Gilbert decided to use a standard box car body for this model.
