Vintage Lionel Train Track Lot W/Coupler & Thingy Good+

This is a decent group of 14 pieces of Vintage Lionel Track, one remote control track section and the "no. 145 C contactor" thingy.

There are 6(SIX) straight track , not just the 4 that are pictured(2 were on vacation on the window sill during the photo shoot) and 8 curved track.

The uncoupler track and switch are fine, but the wire is shot, done, busticated, expired. One piece of track has a buried connector-pin that I don't know how to remove and other than that I'd say everything is Good to Very Good condition.

I'm not a Model RR expert, but I'm guessing that the vintage is just post war, but I don't know for sure.

The "thingy" no. 145 C says; "Automatic Accessories Contactor" and it appears that rolling the train over this unit could blow a whistle or start your coffee maker in the morning?????....wish I knew what it did. This simple little contraption is my favorite Lionel thingy to this date. I know, who cares?

Question ?; is it okay if I cut the icky wire off for shipping?....let me know.

If you live closer to the east coast, the shipping is about $6.50 for 4.5 lbs. USPS Parcel Post, let me know at the end of auction, I'm always willing to ship the cheapest way and I don't charge for handling.

Happy Bid!
