#20465 Missouri Pacific Fast Freight Set
The very rare #20465 Missouri Pacific Fast Freight Set was sold only in 1958.
Since 1958 was the transition year from 3-digit to 5-digit catalog numbers,
most sets (like this one) contained unsold 3-digit cars (914, 924, & 937 in this case).
Sets with only 5-digit cars are extremely rare.

The set was pulled by the #21920 Missouri Pacific Alco diesel engine made only in 1958.
