Lionel 1672 Northern Pacific SS Set (Mint)
Mfg #: Lionel 6-1672
2014 Greenburg Price Guide: $280 (Mint)
This Northern Pacific “Service Station Limited Edition” boxed set was manufactured by Lionel in 1976, the sixth year in this long running series. Beginning in 1971 Lionel began the series, manufacturing a set each year for distribution only by their service/repair stations. The series ended in the mid 90’s.
This set is headed by a Northern Pacific GP-9 diesel, featuring a powerful Pullmor motor, operating headlights, transformer controlled forward/neutral/reverse, die-cast trucks and wheels, metal chassis, and self-centering couplers. 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. The set contains:
All of the component of this set are "factory fresh", Mint condition, “never-been-on-the –tracks”. The outer set box has some yellowing commensurate with its nearly 40-year age. The individual component boxes are in “crisp” Mint condition.
Additional note: At the end of 1976 (Christmas Catalogue) Lionel manufactured a non-powered matching GP-9 dummy for this set. It was numbered 6-8668 and is also available for sale on this site.
