Lionel 11719 Coastal Freight SS Set (Sealed) - SOLD
Mfg #: 6-11719
2014 Greenburg Price Guide: $215 Mint
This Coastal Freight Special set was manufactured by Lionel in 1991. It was one of the last "Service Station" sets made by Lionel.
It is headed by a Delaware & Hudson RS-3 diesel that features dual maintenance-free motors, electronic forward-neutral-reverse control (no annoying "buzz"), a diesel horn, operating headlight, illuminated number boards (w/black numbers), operating magnetic couplers at both ends, and metal chassis, handrails, wheels and axles. This RS-3 features two powered four wheel trucks each with two wheel traction tire drive. The diesel features very popular and prototypical Delaware & Hudson graphics. There are four freight cars and an illuminated caboose that comprise the balance of the set. By the numbers:
This set is factory sealed, and as such all components are in "factory fresh"/Mint condition. All of the freight cars feature all metal sprung trucks with metal wheels, magnetic operating knuckle couplers at both ends. The caboose is lighted and features all metal die-cast trucks with operating magnetic knuckle couplers at both ends.
Within the outer set box each item is individually boxed in a black & white Lionel box.
Photographic notes: Since the set is sealed we have posted file photos of each set component. A few of these are “older” early digital shots, so while we apologize for the quality, we figure these photos are better than none. The set box photo is of the actual set begin sold.
