Detailed description on our website.

Pull into hobby central station with this extensive 1950s Lionel train set. Powered by a #602 Seaboard diesel engine, this vintage postwar set includes a whopping (16) cars with (4) in original boxes, plus an array of accessories. With few exceptions, this handsome ensemble presents admirably with only light signs of wear and some of the coolest train cars we’ve ever seen. The consignor reports that this new to the market train collection has been in storage for decades and when last used it ran in fine working order. Due to time constraints this set has not been tested by H&S and therefore we cannot verify this claim.
