Condition: 8 Original Box: 8 Year: 1946
Up for sale is a beautiful, all-original N5C caboose from the mid-1940's. This caboose is 100% original and classified a factory error as it has a single tool box mounted on the frame -- which only appears on the illuminated 2457 version, never the 2472 non-illuminated version. As seen in the photos, the tool box was mounted & painted over by Lionel, it is not a post-production add-on item.
The caboose has all-original paint with a vibrant red exterior and clean, crisp white lettering. The original box is complete and solid, includes the insert, but has some aging on the exterior.
