Condition: 7+ Original Box: 9 Year: 1963
Now available for sale is an uncatalogued Lionel steam freight set from 1963. According to popular reference books this set was produced for D. O. Klein -- which is an unknown entity at the current time. Production numbers were low with only 2,100 total sets being produced.
Interestingly, this set had two different production runs. The first included the more common caboose to this set: a plain brown SP-style caboose with no exterior lettering nor graphics. This final production run included a harder-to-find 6120 undecorated yellow work caboose. Production numbers for this set containing the 6120 caboose were probably in the area of several hundred total sets -- making this particular set fairly rare!
The outfit now available for sale contains all of the original freight cars as produced by Lionel. Each freight car plus the locomotive are complete and not chipped, cracked nor damaged. The steamer has been cleaned, serviced, tested and operates perfectly. Also included are many of the original "extras" including; 1963 consumer catalogue, set of 1963 billboards, instruction booklet (correct version, # 1641-10) , track, transformer and manual uncoupling mechanism. Condition of most items are closer to an 8 and the only reproduction item in the set is the green auto.
Don't miss out on this opportunity to purchase a clean, complete, rare, original Lionel train set. This can easily be the centerpiece of anyone collection!
