This set also includes the 6806, 6804 and 6808 red flat cars with military loads.

The Pyro vehicles on these flatcars are all original to the set.

Several Greenberg and other publications state the possibilty of substitutions in these sets. This could also be another version of the Seabrook Farms set.

In any event, the 212T is considered by many to be the rarest piece of postwar Lionel produced.
