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. There were three variations of this model. One was unpainted white plastic and is the most common. The second is painted white with fixed doors (as shown in the photo). The third has movable doors. The last two are rare and because of this Greenberg lists them as "NRS" (No Recorded Sales) to obtain any value for these two cars.
