Road Name:Illinois Central
Road Number:24579
Year Introduced:1960
This model was produced in 1960 and 1961. It was labeled as a "multiple-purpose" flat car. There are three variations and they tend to be a rather expensive car to obtain. The car has two bulkheads, three pieces of lumber, two canisters, four cardboard or plastic, or four orange cardboard, pipes, eight stakes, and one plastic brake wheel. The unit in the photo is the most common as it has four silver pipes with sintered-iron side frame trucks and knuckle couplers, although this variation can have four silver plastic pipes as well. The second variation is like the first, except it has four orange cardboard pipes. The third variation, which is a 1961 model, has orange cardboard pipes as well, however, it has Pike-Master trucks and couplers.
