This no reserveauction is for an original Lionel empty box for a 6462-25 Gondola Car. This is the new shorter Middle Classic box made without coupler protection flaps that were no longer necessary when Lionel eliminated the corner steps on the gondola, thus allowing the couplers to be inverted and stored beneath the car inside the box. It is square and strong with a wrinkle on one side. All end flaps, tuck flaps and interior flaps are present with some tape repair where the end flaps meet the tuck flaps. I believe this box would be correct as a component of the 1517W Texas Special and 2219W Lackawanna FM cataloged freight sets in 1954 and 1535W (or 509) Santa Fe F3 AB unit freight set in 1955. Again, this auction is for the empty box only. Please view the pictures for additional descriptive detail.If you have a boxless 6462-25 green painted gondola from 1954 or 1955 then you won't want to miss the opportunity to add this box to your collection! Buyer pays $5.95 for S&H. Please note that I will gladly refund excess postage if the estimate provided is $1.00 or more above actual cost.
