This car was produced from 1954 through to 1956. It was only available as part of one set - the 2239W Illinois Central F3 set from 1955. It was also available for separate sale throughout production. All of them came as a Type IIa body mold (Lionel made several minor changes to the body mold of its box cars over the years. The variations center mostly around the rivet patterns on the sides). There were two main areas of variation - the color of the body mold and how the lettering was applied. Some cars were made with a gray body mold with the gray and red colors painted on. Others were made with a red body mold and only the gray was painted. The red parts were simply left unpainted. The lettering was sometimes applied with a heat stamp and other times with a rubber stamp. Heat stamping leaves an indentation around the edges of the lettering because it was pressed into the plastic. The rubber stamp left no such trace as it just applied the lettering on top of the paint. Lionel did not take the best care when applying the paint. Overspray and uneven lines should be expected where the colors meet. One of these cars with perfect lines is probably repainted. This car came with bar-end diecast trucks and a separately applied brake wheel. Has operating couplers at both ends.
