This auction is for an all original and remarkably preserved postwar Lionel DO-9544 Pikes Peak Dealer Display Layout in Excellent (+) (C7-C8) condition. Manufactured in 1965, this 53" x 26" layout is complete and undamaged; shows modest signs of use. The layout was produced by Lionel and offered exclusively to Sears & Roebuck outlets to promote Lionel's Allstate Pikes Peak HO Slot Car Raceway. The display comes with its original wiring, buss bars, controllers, and transformer, and is in working condition. As with all Lionel slot car sets, the conductive metal roadbed rails will need to be kept meticulously clean in order for the cars to operate properly. A truly great addition to anyone's train room . . . and perhaps the most complete, authentic and well preserved example of a slot car dealer display you will ever find. Don't let this piece of Lionel history pass you by!
By the way . . . Lionel intended to offer a 17514 Pikes Peak racing set in its 1965 consumer catalog. However, the set was never produced. See the accompanying B&W catalog photograph for details.
