1937: Open Goods Truck, Märklin 365 [image info]

A brown 00-gauge Covered Goods Wagon with a cloth representation of a tarpaulin, made by Marklin in the later 1930s.

The 1930s catalogue listings show the "Covered Wagon" as officially having a catalogue number of 363, with 365 being the wagon without tarpaulin.

Identification

Our example //has// the tarpaulin, but if one peers at it //very// carefully, it turns out that the wagon is marked 365, so perhaps this is a 365 wagon with a 363's cover.

On the other hand, the images we've found online of 363 covered wagons also all seem to be the standard 365 wagon with "365 markings.
