You are looking at a newer version of a classic postwar Lionel operating car--the Operating Target Launcher. This is the car that would float the balloon above it, and you could aim your missile car at it, launch the missle and blow the target out of the sky.
This one looks and operates just like the original from the good old days.
Item is in very good shape, operable. The balloons are still sealed. The box shows some wear.
- Operating fan
One target balloon included
- Track powered on-off switch on the car
- Operating knuckle couplers
Metal wheels and axles
- Metal couplers
- Vintage design
- 10 7/8" long
- Minimum Curve: O-27
- Made in USA
Wouldn't this work great with your military train? Or maybe you want to run it with your postwar clasics and leave the ORIGINAL one on the shelf.
CONDITION: Car is nice, looks like new C8. The BOX is more like P6 with some creasing, edgewear, and cellophane wear.
