Hello Union Pacific Railroad (UP) enthusiasts, collectors, and Lionel 3-rail, O-scale operators . . . Here's a neat accessory for your Lionel O-gauge, or American Flyer S-gauge pike… an illuminated billboard featuring your favorite railroad… 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 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 Union Pacific 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.)
