This car has a SILVER painted body that would be decaled with a large YELLOW feather and "Rides Like a Feather" in BLACK. With age the decal film has turned BROWN. This car has bar-end trucks with magnetic couplers.

As with almost all of the SILVER painted equipment, Lionel had problems with the fading of this paint. Today, a premium is paid for paint finishes that are bright and without blemish. There are no variations.
