The #24561 AFL Industrial Brownhoist Crane was produced from 1959 through 1961 in 5 variations. Two variations were produced in 1959 and 1960, which have knuckle couplers. In 1959 the chassis, cab, and boom were all black plastic. The chassis and the boom were both painted gray while the cab was painted black. The second knuckle coupler variation was probably produced in 1960. It has a gray plastic chassis and boom while the cab is black plastic. The third variation, produced in 1961, came with a gray plastic chassis and boom, a black painted cab with Pike-Master trucks and coupler. The remaining two are identical to the third. The differences in these last two variations have to do with the original packaging. One came in a standard red and while box stamped "24569". The second produced in 1965 and 1966 came in an "All Aboard" box, as shown in Photo #2 and #3. In Photo #4, note the factory error on the packaging as the box is stamped "24569" with a #24561 car inside.
