The Operating Sheriff & Outlaw Car No. 3370 would have a sheriff and outlaw engage in a gun battle as the car was pulled along the tracks by popping up and down through openings in the roof of the car. Produced from 1961 until 1964, the movement of sheriff and outlaw was done by a cam located on an axle that was connected to a lever and pawl assembly.
