ORIGINAL LIONEL PREWAR “O” GAUGE PASSENGER CARS PAINTED MEDIUM BLUE WITH A DARK BLUE ROOF, CREAM INSERTS, DOORS, AND COPPER JOURNALS. THE CARS HAVE 6 WHEEL TRUCKS TO MATCH THE 12 WHEEL TENDER THAT CAME WITH THE 241E SET IN 1933 TO 1934. EACH CAR HAS “THE LIONEL LINES” RUBBER-STAMPED ABOVE THE WINDOWS. TWO PULLMANS ARE NUMBERED 710, AND THE OBSERAVTION IS NUMBERED 712. THE PAINT ON ALL 3 CARS IS IN EXCELLENT PLUS/LIKE NEW CONDITION SHOWING VERY LITTLE IF ANY PLAYWEAR. ALL NUMBERS AND LETTERING ARE CRISP AND CLEAR. THE ORIGINAL BOXES DO EXHIBIT SIGNS OF MANY YEARS OF ENJOYABLE USE BY THE PREVIOUS OWNERS BUT STILL HAVE ALL END FLAPS BUT DO HAVE SOME COSMETIC FLAWS GRADING VERY GOOD/VERY GOOD PLUS.
