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.
