Cardboard pipes. The car was uncataloged, and it came in only two uncataloged sets, which are the #20018 Purity Food Store set and the # 20203 Army-Air Force Special set. Because there were so few of these two sets produced, this car tends to be somewhat rare.

Road Name:New York New Haven & Hartford
Year Introduced:1960
#(24564) is an uncataloged car that was produced in 1960 only and has two variations. This car came in four uncataloged sets, one of which was the #20182 "Prestone Special" set that contained the rare painted #24030 MKT box car. As you will note from the photo the car carries no number imprinted on its sides, thus the Greenberg guide lists the number in parentheses. The two variation have to do with the color and material of the three pipes which are the load for this car. The rarer variation has three orange cardboard pipes, as shown in the photo, while the more common variation has three silver plastic pipes.
