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 two variations, where one has 1/8" lettering while the second has 5/32" lettering.
