Two different versions of the 156 Station Platform:
156 Station Platform E++ Yes $125 Illuminated Station Platform from 1946-1949 with these ORIGINAL signs: (FLEERS -- BABY RUTH -- SUNOCO -- RIVAL). Original red roof and green base.
Photo of the other side.
Some paint chips on the base plus a couple of paint chips on the roof and that's it for flaws. This station is very, very clean with nice vibrant paint and intact original fencing plus it does light!
Close-up showing one side of all four signs.
Minimal flaws on the signs! They are all are very, very clean with nice graphics.
Two views of the roof.

This very popular, prewar carryover piece is always a nice addition to any layout and many operators have purchased six (6) over the years to try to duplicate the Lionel layout scene in New York in the late 40's.
156 Station Platform E+ Yes $ 95 Illuminated Station Platform from 1946-1949 with these ORIGINAL signs: (REMINGTON TYPEWRITERS -- BABY RUTH -- SUNOCO -- RIVAL). Original red roof and green base.
Photo of the other side.
Minor paint chips on the roof plus the base has some paint loss around one of the mounting holes and that's about it for flaws on the structure; has reproduction fencing. This station is very clean with nice vibrant paint -- and it does light!

175-200 Control Panel E++ Yes $ 85 Illuminated, multi-function controller that originally came with a 175 rocket launcher; it is used for the movement of the gantry, the countdown and the firing of the rocket. This item is often missing from the accessory or not working properly.
Close-up of the "WARNING" light display.
Minimal flaws! It is complete, all intact and clean overall with nice lettering -- plus it was serviced by us and it lights and works perfectly!
Photo of the back.
Since it has all of the features as the 413 Countdown Control Panel (plus more), it can also be used to operate other space and military items remotely!
Photo of the bottom.

Nicest 175-200 Control Panel we have ever had; it is also an item that we have not had for sale in over five years!
310 Complete 1954
Billboard Sheet
VG Yes $ 45 A complete 1954 uncut sheet of 8 card-stock billboards. This assortment of original billboards has three automobile-related ads plus three food-related ads and two home-related ads: (BRECK SHAMPOOS -- CAMPBELL'S SOUPS -- DuPONT ANTI-FREEZE -- FRAM OIL FILTERS -- LIPTON ICED TEA -- NEW DEPARTURE Safety Brakes -- SUNOCO MOTOR OIL -- WRIGLEY'S).
Close-up of the top four billboards.
Some moisture stains and creases. However the creases should improve over time with proper storage including the use of heavy objects to maintain an equal distribution of weight on top.
Close-up of the bottom four billboards.
Uncut sheets from any year are very hard to find!

This is the first 1954 uncut set that we have ever offered for sale! If you have a boxed 1954 Lionel train set, it is not complete without this billboard sheet!
352 Ice Depot Set Depot:
E+

Car:
E++

Set:
OB
Yes $295 A sharp operating Ice Depot Set from 1955: includes the 6352-1 Union Pacific Ice Car (version with four lines of rubber-stamped data on the ice compartment door).
Photo of the Station.
Also called the "Icing Station" -- this one has the red base and it measures 11 3/4 inches long by 4 inches wide by 8 1/2 inches high.
Photo of the other side of the station.
Minor discoloration on the white sides of the building and that's about it for flaws! The unit is very clean and nothing is cracked or missing! The rust-free metal frame is nice as well. Has the original man & paddle.
An "aerial" view of the station.

Photo of the unloading side of the car.
The special orange "PACIFIC FRUIT EXPRESS" reefer has black heat-stamped lettering on the body plus metal, bar-end trucks with magnetic couplers.
Photo of the loading side of the car.
Minor rust spots on the metal door guides and that's about it for flaws! The car is completely intact and very, very clean with very strong lettering!
An "aerial" view of the car.

Photo of the box.
Grade 7+ original box (tears; creases; stains; "aged" look).
Another view of the box.
Has the elaborate insert and this box is solid: fairly clean, complete, square and sturdy!
Photo of the bottom of the box.
Has the original instruction sheet #352-44, dated 10/55 (tears, creases, tape), the 5 original ice cubes and the correct 90C controller.
Photo of the instruction sheet, ice cubes and controller.

One of Lionel's most reliable and smooth-working accessories; this one works great, looks great and certainly lives up to its reputation as being a "cool" accessory!

455 Oil Derrick E++/OB Yes $295
SOLD
One of my favorite accessories: the bubbling and pumping Oil Derrick:
Photo of the derrick.
Has a red metal base with a green tower and platform. The base contains a black drum rack, maroon walking beam plus an orange generator. The base measures 9 7/8 inches wide by 5 1/4 inches deep and the overall height of the unit is 14 inches.
Photo of the other side of the derrick.
When the unit is energized, the lamp under the bubbling tube lights up which then heats the oil in the tube causing small vapor bubbles to rise to the top thus creating the illusion of flowing oil. In addition, a solenoid and plunger mechanism under the base drives the walking beam to rock back and forth intermittently to simulate oil pumping.
Close-up of the platform.
The base has some paint chips and scratches and that's it for flaws! The unit is completely intact and very clean with nice vibrant paint!
Close-up of the base.
The unit lights, bubbles and works perfectly!
Photo of the slide switch, oil drums & Sunoco sign.
Has the ORIGINAL Sunoco sign (some factory tape residue), the correct, original 364C slide switch, the four original oil drums, the correct original instruction sheet #455-81, dated 2/51 plus the 1950-51 "LIONEL SERVICE STATIONS" booklet which was provided with each accessory.
Photo of the instruction sheet & Service Stations booklet.

Photo of the box.
Grade 6 original corrugated St. Joe Paper Company box.
Another view of the box.
The 455 Oil Derrick was sold from 1950 to 1954 but the all-blue printing on the box, the instruction sheet date and the 1950-51 booklet all help to date this piece as a 1951 item.
Photo of the bottom of the box.
Box flaws: missing the top layer in two areas of one end, tears, creases, lots of discoloration on the bottom.
Photo of the box insert.
Has the box insert and even with the imperfections, this box is decent as it is square and sturdy plus there is no un-original tape anywhere!

A fantastic accessory for a layout! The 455 Oil Derrick is a very realistic-looking piece that is also very reliable!
LTC Illuminated
Lockon

(in the
original
component box
)
E+/OB Yes $ 45 The most attractive and useful track connector made by Lionel in the postwar era: the lighted "LTC" lockon with green cap. Has the original instruction sheet #23-10 (dated 2/58) and two unused (still-coiled) connecting wires!
Photo of the top and underside of the lockon.
Minimal flaws -- it is very, very clean and completely intact!
Photo of the box.
Grade 7+ "separate sale" original box (tears; dent; "aged' look). The box is very presentable: clean, complete, square and sturdy and there is no tape anywhere! The box style, instruction sheet date plus the color and gauge of the wires identify this piece as having been sold in 1958.

Tested and it works perfectly! The LTC is a very handy device for any layout as it allows the operator to know if power is being supplied to the track and if not, alerting the operator of a possible broken wire -- or worse, if there is a short.
