Hello Union Pacific Railroad (UP) enthusiasts, collectors, and Lionel 3-rail, O-scale operators . . . For your consideration - this brand new Illuminated Billboard for your O-gauge, or American Flyer S-gauge layout, promoting railroads as the backbone of offense. (Please see photos loading below.)
's a neat accessory for your pike - an Illuminated Billboard promoting your favorite railroad… in this case, the Union Pacific -- "…Keep 'em Rolling for Victory" in World War II, featuring UP 4-8-8-4 Big Boy #4019. This billboard features a typical, full-color advertisement from the 1940's, promoting railroads as the "Backbone of Offense". The billboard comes fully 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 Union Pacific 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 an always-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.)
