You are looking at a super MTH Tinplate Traditions release from way back in 1998--that's right, 25 years ago!
This one is the best of both worlds--the exact look of the classic Lionel 200 series standard gauge cars with the brand new parts and shine of a new item. Put this looker out on display and don't worry about a thing. Let everyone ooh and ahhh.
This is an earlier MTH tinplate item. As such, it is not one you see for sale all that often.
It is a remake of the old classic Lionel Standard Gauge #212 gondola with cannisters. Use it with any standard gauge, and it will be right at home. You can run it with the original or add it to the MTH tinplate cars you have.
Here is the MTH 10-1074 Tinplate Traditions Standard Gauge No.212 Gondola with 3 containers from 1998. It is Apple Green with nickel trim, features all metal construction and baked enamel finish. It is a reproduction of the classic Lionel 212 from the 1920s and 30s.
