Hello MKT and Frisco "Texas Special" enthusiasts, collectors, and Lionel 3-rail, O-scale operators . . . >>>>>>>>>> N E W I T E M J u n e 2 0 0 9 For your consideration - this brand new Illuminated Billboard for your O-gauge, or American Flyer S-gauge layout, featuring the Katy and Frisco's famed "Texas Special" Post-war Streamliner. (Please see photos loading below.)
's a neat accessory for your pike – an Illuminated Billboard featuring your favorite passenger train… in this case, the "Texas Special". This famous streamliner was jointly operated by the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad (MKT or Katy) and the St. Louis-San Francisco Railway (Frisco), and provided fast service between St. Louis and San Antonio. The billboard depicts the EMD E7A locomotives and Pullman-Standard equipment used during the 1950's. This would be an especially appropriate structure on your layout if you happen to own Lionel's #2245 units. The billboard comes wired with a blinking 14 volt #258 bulb. 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 Texas Special equipment. These billboards now come with an internal reflector installed to distribute the light over the entire image. I'm also including an 18v #1447 bulb, in case you prefer a constant-on illumination. This item was custom-designed and manufactured for use with Lionel Trains.
An optional Super Structure Kit is listed separately for these billboards. (See photo, lower right.)
Condition & Features - Brand new, out of the box only for photo (I do test each bulb before I ship). O-gauge, O-27 size – matches Lionel, MTH, K-Line, Atlas-O, etc. Also OK for American Flyer S-gauge – overall billboard size is 3½" high by 6" wide. Construction is injection molded plastic with detailed lattice work along the bottom. Sign is backlit…light comes from behind the image. The bulb compartment is completely enclosed – back snaps off for bulb change. Designed for 14 volts AC or DC, but you can alter this with a different rated bulb.
