Hello John Deere Tractor enthusiasts, collectors, and Lionel 3-rail, O-scale operators . . . Here's a nice addition to your Lionel or American Flyer layout, or your farm equipment models diorama… an illuminated billboard advertising farm machinery of the 1950's. From the good people at John Deere in Moline, Ill… "Meet These All-New Tractors" …the heavy-duty 2 and 3-plow model "50" and "60" Series farm tractors. 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 die-cast toy tractor collectibles. 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.)
