The merchandise car came with six No. 3814-53 "Baby Ruth" plastic merchandise crates that were manually loaded through a hatch in the roof and were unloaded electronically with the use of a UCS or No. 6019 track section into a waiting No. 160 Unloading Bin at track side. The plastic crates are usually REDDISH BROWN in color, but have also been found in BLACK and RED colors. These crates have been reproduced but the reproductions are BROWN in color and do not have the "Baby Ruth" imprint.
The crates came in a No. 3454-51 Envelope along with a No. 3454-47 Instruction Sheet. A picture of this envelope is shown below.
There are three variations:
Variation A: Used Type 3a trucks and the lettering is DARK BLUE almost BLACK in color. The roof hinge pin was not visible on the end of the car.
Variation B: Has RED heat-stamped lettering. This is most likely an early production run.
Variation C: This is the same as Variation A, except that the lettering is DARK BLUE and the roof hinge pin shows through on the side of the car. 1947 Production.
