Hello MKT and Frisco "Texas Special" enthusiasts, collectors, and Lionel 3-rail, O-scale operators . . . Here's a neat accessory for your Lionel O-gauge, or American Flyer S-gauge layout… an illuminated billboard featuring the Katy and Frisco's famed "Texas Special" passenger train. This famous post-war 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 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 Texas Special equipment. 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.)
