Hello California Zephyr enthusiasts, collectors, and Lionel 3-rail, O-scale operators . . . Here's a neat accessory for your Lionel O-gauge, or American Flyer S-gauge pike – an Illuminated Billboard featuring the spectacular views seen from the new Vista-Dome cars on the California Zephyr. This famous train was run by, and with the cooperation of 3 railroads: the Western Pacific, the Rio Grande, and the Burlington, providing passenger service between San Francisco, Oakland, Salt Lake City, Denver, and Chicago. This billboard print features a typical, full-color advertisement from the 1950's. The billboard comes fully wired with a steady-on 18-volt bulb and reflector for full-width, back-lit illumination. You can power this from the accessory terminals of your transformer or a battery eliminator. This billboard looks great even without the illumination…on your layout, desk, or in the display cabinet alongside your favorite Zephyr equipment. This item was custom-designed and manufactured for use with Lionel Trains. (Please see item photos provided below.) You can examine this item at our home in Northwest New Jersey anytime during the auction.
An optional superstructure frame kit is listed separately for these billboards. (See inset above, right.)
