RARE Vintage 1950s LIONEL TURNPIKE SET #962 with BOX

Lionel “Plasticville” Turnpike Set #962 . It was part of my train set when I was a boy; purchased in 1958. Includes Tollbooth Unit with 2 base pieces, 2 booths, roof, 2 interchange signs and 8 traffic lights which are inserted into slots in the roof piece. In addition, there are 6 vehicles (4 cars, an ambulance and a bus), 4 telephone poles, 3 traffic cones and 9 traffic signs. CONDITION : A small piece of the “S” in “Plasticville” on one of the interchange signs is missing. Otherwise I see no damage or soiling other than some minuscule staining on the car wheels. The box has a couple of edge tears. Please see pictures for a better idea. PLEASE NOTE that if any pieces are missing I would not know, so please look at the pictures as I have to count on your expertise as a collector.

I am not an expert in everything I sell, I just describe each item to the best of my ability, pointing out flaws in the same manner I would want them listed if I were the buyer. I tend to judge rather strictly, so you can be sure of an accurate description. Please refer to the photos and email with all questions BEFORE bidding.
