What we have here is a Lionel flatbed truck with three dome tank car and it's the 5th truck in this great series. Another beauty and a Limited Edition, it was produced by Taylor Made Trucks of Englewood New Jersey. This Lionel flatbed comes serialized, is 1/32 scale with a working O/ 0-27 gauge Lionel three dome tank car. The truck has head and tail lights, engine start, run, and air brake sounds! (so cool). The flatbed trailer is different from #LT-20 cab in that the 3 rails are now inserted into the trailer deck without using ties or track section. In addition, wheel stoppers are included on the end of 2 rails to keep tanker from rolling off during truck movement. The location of “Irvington, NJ” is printed on each cab door along with the Lionel “L” logo. The flatbed trailer compartment features lettering for Lionel Lock-Ons and Lionel Rail-Joiner Pins. License plates state Lionel Collector Series with no year. The tank car is a very well detailed model of a 3-dome car with metal wheels and operating knuckle couplers. It was newly made by Taylor Made Trucks especially for the Lionel truck. Detailing includes wood grain on tank car frame, separate tank end straps, metal railings, brake wheel and Taylor logo imprinted into chassis underneath. The tank car is also lettered for Lionel Lubricant using the exact same lettering style from the original Lionel lubricant tubes of the 1950's! On the side is copy from the original tube: "A Highly Refined Lubricant Made Especially For Model Trains And Similar Devices". Tank car has Lionel Lines 2001 reporting marks and a “RETURN TO AGENT LVRR HILLSIDE NJ” placard. The Lionel Electric Trains rectangular logo is also used on tank car sides. Both flatbed truck and tank car have matching serial numbers and are packed in a full color Lionel-style box.This piece was offered ONLY by The Toy Truck Collector and select Lionel dealers. Another great collectible that is almost impossible to locate, this one is a must have for that avid Lionel collector. Uses 2 "C" batteries not included.
