Postwar Lionel Accessories
Catalog #ItemGradePhotoPriceDescription & More Information
64 Highway
Lamp Post
VG Yes $ 45 A mint-green, die-cast, scale highway lamp post from the '40s: measures 6 3/4 inches high. Made before WW2 as well as after but there is no way to distinguish the postwar version from the prewar version.
Another view of the lamp post.
The fixture has various paint chips and some box rub but it's clean overall with nice vibrant paint -- and it does light!
Close-up of both the top and the bulb.
Like the #35 Boulevard Lamp, the 64 Lamp Post was always painted after it was assembled resulting in green-painted wiring underneath!
An "aerial" view plus a close-up of the underside of the base.

Has a unique white rounded bulb that was never used on any other Lionel item; in addition it has never been reproduced accurately and knowledgeable operators keep the voltage level below 12 volts so as to preserve its life. The bulb in this lamp post is yellowed with age but it is an original one and it still works!
132 Passenger Station
with
"STOP
Control"
E+/OB Yes $110 An illuminated passenger station from 1950: white building, maroon base and green roof:
Photo of the front and bench side of the station.
Large plastic station is very detailed and measures 6 1/2 inches high, 12 1/8 inches long and 8 1/4 inches wide.
Photo of the back and ramp side of the station.
Has a thermostatically controlled stop feature and the roof lifts off to allow access to the lever that controls the length of time that the train pauses at the station.
An "aerial" view.
One of the roof corners is chipped and the base sides have some surface scratches (below the outside walkway). That's it for flaws! The station is very clean and the original "LIONELVILLE" signs on the sides are completely 100% intact!
Photo of the envelope, instruction sheet, lockons, insulating pins, connecting wires and inspection slip.
Has the original envelope #132-41 (dated 3/50), correct original instruction sheet #115-2 (dated 3/50), two CTC lockons plus two fibre pins for "O" gauge track, two fibre pins for "O27" gauge track & three unused (still coiled) connecting wires and the inspection slip!

Photo of the box.
Grade 7 original box.
Another view of the box.
Box flaws: tears, creases, mildly distorted, "aged" look.
Photo of the side with the manufacturer's identification.
Has both RARE inserts and this Seaboard Container Corp. box is solid: clean, complete, square & sturdy -- and there is no un-original tape anywhere.
Photo of the inserts.

A great layout piece: impressive looking plus it lights and works perfectly! The 132 Station was made from 1949-1955 but the box, envelope & instruction sheet all help date this accessory as a 1950 item.
156 Station Platform E+/OB Yes $185 Illuminated Station Platform from 1949 with these original signs: (LIONEL CONSTRUCTION KITS -- BABY RUTH -- SUNOCO -- RIVAL). Original red roof and green base.
Photo of the other side.
Small amount of discoloration on the base plus some rub marks on the roof and that's about it for flaws on the structure -- it has new (repro) fencing and this station is very, very clean with nice vibrant paint -- and it does light!
Close-up showing one side of all four signs.
The ORIGINAL signs have a few minor scratches & crazing but they are very clean with nice graphics overall.
Two views of the roof.

Photo of the box.
Grade 9 original box (small tears; minor stains; "period" writing).
Another view of the box.
Has both inserts and this box is SOLID: clean, complete, square & sturdy -- plus there is no un-original tape anywhere! It is one of the nicest 156 Station Platform Boxes we have ever had!
Photo of the box inserts.
This corrugated box was made by the Gair Bogota Corp.
Photo of the manufacturer's information.

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.
175-200 Control Panel E+ Yes $ 95 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.
A few light scratches plus the decal has a few chips and that's about it for 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! We have not had this item for sale separately in over two years!
310 Complete 1952
Billboard Sheet
E/E+ Yes $ 45 A complete 1952 uncut sheet of 10 card-stock billboards. This assortment of original billboards includes these ads: (PLYMOUTH -- WRIGLEY'S -- SUNSWEET -- HEINZ -- FRIGIDAIRE -- BABY RUTH -- DuPONT -- SUNOCO -- SILVER SPRINGS -- GENERAL TIRE).
Close-up of the area with stains.
Some moisture stains on the border and on two of the billboards. Uncut sheets from any year are very hard to find and overall, this sheet is very presentable.

If you have a boxed 1952 Lionel train set, it is not complete without this billboard sheet!
334 Dispatch Board E+/OB Yes $295 An illuminated, operating Dispatch Board from 1957-60: has a light green board with white lettering on the front plus a multi-colored Airex advertisement and a simulated, lithographed "LIONEL TRAVEL CENTER" on the back.
Photo of the back of the unit.
The base measures 9 7/8 inches wide by 4 1/8 inches deep and the overall height of the unit is 7 1/2 inches.
Two side views of the unit.
A couple of minor paint chips and one light scratch on the board plus a few light scuff marks on the black shroud and that's about it for flaws! The unit is very, very clean and nothing is cracked or broken! The unit lights and works perfectly at around 12 volts! Has the original man.
Photo of the instruction sheet and the controller.
Includes the original instruction sheet #334-86, dated 9/57 (tears, creases, stains) and the correct 90C Controller.

Photo of the box.
Grade 7+ original box (creases; stains; writing).
Another view of the box.
This corrugated box was made by the Express Container Corp.
Photo of the back showing the box manufacturer's identification and data.
Has ALL THREE inserts (some creases) and this box is solid: fairly clean, complete, square and sturdy -- plus there is no un-original tape anywhere! this is the first 334 box we have ever had with all three inserts!
Photo of the box inserts.

A great layout piece -- when this clever accessory is energized, the board lights up and the man walks across the front while the dial spins to show the next arriving train. We have not had many Dispatch Boards over the years and this 334 is a nice one -- and it is in a strong box!
Our Archives Page has more information on 334 Dispatch Boards.
362 Operating
Barrel Loader
======
E+++
Un-used
OB
======

SOLD
A very useful and great operating accessory from 1954 that was NEVER USED! Version with blue man.
Two views of the barrel loader.
Very, very clean, all-original rust-free piece with minimal flaws! "Bench tested" and the unit works perfectly!
A peek inside the box showing how it was packed by Lionel.

Photo of the box.
The St. Joe Paper Company original box has a couple of creases and a small amount of writing.
Another view of the box.
The box has the year (designated by "4") printed on the manufacturer's data side!
Close-up of the manufacturer's information and date.
Has the main insert (liner) plus the four smaller corner inserts and this box is SOLID: clean, complete, square and sturdy -- plus there is no un-original tape anywhere! It is a grade 9+ and it is the nicest 362 box we have ever seen!
Includes the UNOPENED original envelope #362-94 (dated 3/53) which contains the track clips, instruction sheet #362-96, three connecting wires and a 364C controller. Also comes with 6 original barrels in a 362-78 original component box plus the 1954-55 "LIONEL SERVICE STATIONS" booklet which was provided with each accessory plus the original inspection slip!
Photo of the service station booklet, envelope, barrel box and inspection slip.
The 362-78 component box is a grade 9+ -- one of the nicest ones we have ever had! The envelope is wrinkled thanks to the way that Lionel packed it but it is intact and clean!

Gorgeous accessory; gorgeous box! This high-quality 362 has to be one of the nicest barrel loaders left on the planet!!!
365 Dispatching Station E+/OB Yes $225
SOLD
One of the hardest accessories to find: the illuminated Dispatching Station from 1958-59.
A side view.
The structure has an elevated control room with clear, plastic windows showing dispatchers at work (simulated on a paper insert). Version with the red-painted elevated control room on a black mold! Has a gray roof and a buff-colored base.
Photo of the other side.
This impressive-looking accessory measures 11 inches long by 5 inches wide by 6 1/2 inches high -- plus another 2 3/4 inches for the antenna.
Photo of the back.
A little box rub in one corner plus a small, mild circular depression in the roof caused by the heat of the bulb and that's about it for flaws! It is all original, completely intact and very, very clean with nice lettering! The paper insert is in excellent plus condition and of course, the accessory does light.
Photo of the roof.
Similar to the 465 Sound Dispatching Station but without the microphone or internal speaker. How do we know that this station is really a "365" Dispatch Station and not the common "465" without its microphone masquerading as the 365? Glad you asked -- see the proof in the next photo.
Photo of the "365" identification on the bottom of the base.
Has the original simulated loud speakers & the original radio tower with the original dish antennas plus the original instruction sheet #365-10, (dated 3/58) -- only the third time we have ever had this instruction sheet!
Photo of the instruction sheet.

Photo of the box.
Grade 7+ original box.
Another view of the box.
Flaws: top flaps are creased and have the remnants of a store's advertising tape, tears, "period" writing, no insert.
Photo of the top of the box.
Even with the imperfections, this box is solid: clean, square and sturdy -- plus it is a very, very difficult box to find.
Photo of the bottom of the box.

It's a colorful piece that will look great on any layout or display shelf -- plus it comes in a very strong box!
410 Billboard Blinker
with
Frame & Billboard
E++ Yes $ 45 A blinking lamp metal fixture from 1956-1958: has an adjustment to control the rate of blinking. Minimal flaws -- it is very clean and it works perfectly!
Photo of the back.
Comes with a FREE "AIREX" billboard from 1957-58 and a FREE green #310 plastic frame. (Lionel sold the billboards & frames separately.)
Photo of the 410 attached to a billboard.

Always a great item to dress up a layout!

Need some billboards and frames? We have the 310 billboard Set from 1952 listed above!
3656-9 Box of Cattle E+++/OB Yes $ 45
SOLD
A complete set of nine (9) good-looking, ORIGINAL black cows in a grade 8 original "Middle Classic" component box from 1952-55:
Another view of the box.
Box flaws: tears & creases. The box is SOLID: clean, complete, square and sturdy!

The cows are for the 3656 Cattle Car and 3656-150 Cattle Corral and they came in component boxes from 1949 to 1958 but this "Middle Classic" box (with "American Toys" logo and with a tuck flap number plus "3656-34" on all four sides) dates these cows as 1952-55 livestock.

Note: original cows work much better than the repros that have been made over the years!

Postwar Lionel Transformers

1033 Transformer E+++/OB Yes $ 65

Photo of the bottom base plate.
The line cord was replaced and everything works perfectly! Some scuff marks on the bottom base plate and that's about it for cosmetic flaws! The unit is very, very clean with crisp lettering and the case is completely intact. The unit also has a very clean and rust free base plate.
Photo of the instruction sheet.
Includes the correct original instruction sheet #1033-68, dated 6/53 (tears, creases, writing).

Photo of the box.

Another view of the box.
This St. Joe Paper Company box is solid: complete, square and sturdy!
Photo of the side with the manufacturer's information.

The versatile 1033 is a very popular transformer among operators. It is a great transformer for a work bench, small layout or for use around the Christmas tree. It can also be used as an auxiliary source of power for accessories on a large layout. The 1033 also came in many, many sets so if you have an outfit that you want to make complete, this transformer (and its paperwork) will help satisfy that need.

Comes with a two-year guarantee!!!
