Lionel 1970 Southern Pacific LTD Set (Sealed)
Mfg #: Lionel 6-1970
2013 Greenburg Price Guide: $365.00 (Mint)
This Southern Pacific Limited "Collector Series" boxed set was manufactured by Lionel in 1979. It is one in a series of sets that was made between 1978 and 1992. All were easily identified by their bright solid color boxes, in all the colors of the rainbow. This set is still factory sealed, and it is getting harder and harder to find such sealed sets.
The set is comprised of:
Both diesel units feature interior lighting, die-cast, six-wheel trucks, with metal rails and a stamped metal chassis. The powered unit features a powerful Pullmor motor with traction tires. The multi-colored prototypical Southern Pacific graphics have remained very popular over the past 26+ years making these units very desirable, while at the same time being hard to find.
All of the cars (except the caboose) roll on all metal working sprung trucks featuring metal wheels & axles. The caboose is illuminated and has die-cast trucks. All cars have operating magnetic knuckle couplers at both ends.
Note: The additional photos below, of the individual items, are “file photos” since the set for sale is sealed.
