Lionel 11749 Western Maryland SS Set (Sealed) - SOLD
Mfg #: 6-11749
2014 Greenburg Price Guide: $300 (Mint)
This Western Maryland Freight Set was manufactured by Lionel in 1995. It was one of the last "Service Station" sets made by Lionel.
It is headed by a Western Maryland GP-20 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 GP-20 features two powered four wheel trucks each with two wheel traction tire drive. The diesel features very popular and prototypical Western Maryland graphics. There are six hopper 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 hoppers 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 an orange Lionel box.
Asdditional note: At the end of 1995, in their Holiday Catalog, Lionel included an "extra" car for this set . That hopper 6-16423, is also available for sale on this site in the Rolling Stock section.
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 apologies for the quality, we figure these photos are better than none. The set box photo is of the actual set begin sold.
