hjstr6, considering the original condition of the loco with a paint job by a ten year old, it looks like you did a terrific job. I'll bet it is rewarding to see it run and look good. I don't see many 295's around.

I don't see many either and I wasn't sure what I had until I looked it up. It was a great find.

What a great job on the 295, it looks like new. The 295 was a one year only from 1951. The don't come up for sale too often and are generally higher priced depending on condition. Does the Air Chime Whistle work?

The restored 295 looks great. For reference here is my Excellent condition original 295 nose to nose with its 290 stablemate. This picture was posted previously. That 295 redo must have taken some time.

Sweet. That's what I have...a 290, but not in nearly as good of condition.

My 973 Gilbert's operating milk unloading car with it's 25018 box. The difference in the 25018 vs. the 25019 catalogued # for the 5 digit car I believe was the 25018 was the # assigned for a car that was being packaged in a cataloged set in 1957 instead of a separate sale car. Gilbert sure made the switch from 3 to 5 digits interesting and confusing. I think the 25019 stamped car came with the correctly numbered box in 1958 and later. IMG_0039.JPG

Nice looking car and OB. Does the platform come in the box as well?

Yes, if you look to the left in the box pic it's in the back round on the layout. The 4 milk cans and the button along with the track trip are in the box. The white paint on the platform has started to flake off in spots. I sure wish Gilbert would have used primer on the bare metal parts before painting. The instructions and the inspectors voucher were not with the box when I purchased it.
