Hello Illinois Central (IC) and Electro-Motive (EMD) enthusiasts, collectors, and Lionel 3-rail, O-scale operators . . . Here's a neat accessory for your Lionel O-gauge, or American Flyer S-gauge layout… an illuminated billboard featuring General Motors' new diesel power on the Illinois Central Railway. This ad comes from the locomotive manufacturer General Motors and shows their new line of E-unit diesels from Electro-Motive Division. "Ninety-five? I thought we were doing about sixty!", exclaims the traveler. Shown on the billboard is the Illinois Central "Panama Limited" …an all-Pullman train that ran from Chicago to New Orleans. 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 Lionel EMD diesel power or Illinois Central 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.)
