Lionel 17006 SOO Line 2-Bay ACF Hopper (MInt)
Mfg #: 6-17006
2014 Greenburg Price Guide: $36 (Mint)
This SOO Line two-bay ACF center-flow hopper was manufactured by Lionel in 1993. It was available only as part of the SOO Line Service Station set (one of a series of boxed sets made by Lionel available only at authorized Lionel Service Centers). The car contains an extreme amount of detail, and is very prototypical of the closed hoppers on the railroads of today. Lionel ACF hoppers are highly collectible. The Standard "O" car has all metal sprung truck with metal wheels and axles and magnetic couplers at both ends.
This car is in "factory fresh" condition (i.e. "Mint", "brand new", "never been on the tracks or displayed"), direct from a previously sealed set. The car was issued in an orange & blue Lionel windowed box. That box comes with this car and is also in crisp, "factory fresh", Mint condition.
