The Lionel Trains Santa Fe No. 6076 Type VI Variation A

Lionel 6456 Series Hopper CarsThe Santa Fe Hopper Car No. 6076 was uncataloged in 1963 and was included in the Libby’s promotional outfit No. 19263 that was available this year. This hopper car did not have a brake wheel and it came with combinations of AAR and Arch-bar trucks, usually with one disc and one solid coupler.
There are two variations:

Variation A: GRAY body with BLACK heat-stamped lettering. Has AAR trucks with one disc coupler and one solid non-operating coupler.
Variation B: GRAY body with BLACK heat-stamped lettering. Has arch-bar trucks with two solid non-operating couplers.
Although these variations are questionable because of the combination of trucks and couplers that this car used, they are listed here to show the major differences. Note on the car pictured above that it has one arch-bar truck with a solid non-operating coupler and one AAR truck with a operating disc coupler.
