Here's the first generation searchlight car produced by Lionel containing the harder-to-find maroon generator and a crinkle gray light housing. This freight car has been thoroughly cleaned, serviced, tested and works exactly as designed by Lionel. There is no rust on the trucks nor couplers and the staple-end trucks are complete and not damaged. Additionally, the exterior colors are gorgeous with vibrant exterior colors and complete side lettering.
Lastly, also included is an early Three Cities box with original instructions (dated 5/49) and the hard-to-find packing insert!
