CLEAN 1952 version in OPS BOX
You are looking at a Lionel bumper from the 1950s. This is a clean die cast illuminated bumper. When your train hits the black part, your trolley or gang car will reverse direction. OR you can put them at the end of the line in your trainyard. It lights up red on top.
CONDITION: Bumper is in C-7+ to C-8 condition--real nice! Tested and works. With box and instructions.
Original OPS box shows aging in the white, has handling wear, missing one tab, and has one taped end. Still, one of the tougher ones to find.
The instructions pictured are DATED 1953 but they are the ones we got with the box.
