|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 hopper has two variations. One is like the one in the photo. The second is a factory error unit that is double stamped on one side.|
The second photo was taken by Bob Werre of Jack Troxell's model, which he converted to scale, repainted, and applied custom decals to.
