"The Katy" box car was produced in 1958 only and has just one variation. This is a very rare car, because it was produced in 1958 only, offered in only two higher-priced sets, and as a separate sale item in a year in which Gilbert dropped the production of many items early in the year due to the poor economic conditions.
