This set consisted of four heavy cardboard pieces that were printed on both sides that formed the mountain and pass configuration that came in only one uncataloged set. This set was to be used with the #747 Cardboard Trestle Set to form a figure-eight layout. The odd thing about this item is that it came in a 5-digit set at a time when Gilbert was using their 5-digit numbering system yet this item was given a 3-digit catalog number that had been used in 1952 for the Single Trestle Bridge.
