This basket-weave box once held one of the most desirable postwar sets ever produced by Lionel. The box measures approximately 19" long X 12-1/4" wide X 7-1/4" high. The number 2270W is clearly printed on the front panel. It is square and strong with all flaps present and firmly attached. The top of one interior flap has a small amount of writing. The box shows shelf wear primarily in the form of tape residue and some skinning on the end panels and top flaps. It looks like tape was once used to hold the box closed. With a little patience the new owner might be able to remove some of the extra tape without damaging the box. Guaranteed to be original. Please see the photos for more descriptive detail.

This no reserve auction is for an empty original box for Lionel passenger set 2270W. Lionel produced the 2270W in 1956 only when it retailed for a whopping $75.00. Its top-of-the-line components included the 2341 Jersey Central FM diesel engine and 2531 Silver Dawn Observation Car, 2532 Silver Range Vista Dome and 2533 Silver Cloud Pullman Car. Some of the sets included the wide flat-channel car variations. Again, this listing is for the empty set box only.
