Manufacturer ID:24126
Category:Gondolas
Road Name:St. Louis-San Francisco (SLSF)
Road Number:24126
Year Introduced:1961
The #24126 gondola was produced in 1961 that has two variations. The more common variation, shown in the background of the main photo, has a Tuscan plastic body. The much more rare variation is painted Tuscan over a Tuscan plastic shell, shown in the foreground, that is a bit lighter in color. The #24126 gondola, when sold as part of a set, came in a set box that contained a cutout in the insert to hold the car in place. The #24126 that was sold separately typically came in a red & white Pike-Master style box. The plastic variation, for what ever reason, came in a plain tan box with the number stamped on one end (see Photo #3).
