The Lumber Car No. 6264 was designed to work with the No. 264 Operating Forklift accessory. Issued between 1957 and 1958, this car was contained within the No. 264 box, but was offered for separate sale only until 1958 even thought the No. 264 Operating Forklift accessory was available until 1960.
This car was not boxed within this accessory, but was only issued in a box for those cars that were sold separately. This makes an original box more difficult to obtain. It was produced on a 6511-2 RED body with WHITE heat-stamped lettering and number. The 6511-2 body mold was used because this frame had the mounting holes needed to hold the three lumber racks.
