You are looking at a neat Lionel item--this is a set of TWO very CLEAN Operating Track Control lock on for use with your Lionel tubular track. Some accessories require that you have two of these, so we thought we would put them in one lot for you.
These would be ideal to put with that excellent to like new conditioned accessory that you need to make 100% complete.
You can use the OTC lockon for various operating freight cars that require the additional control rails to operate. The OTC lockon is made to clip on to O27 track but you can use the attached O gauge adapter pins to make it work with O gauge. The rails here actually appear BETWEEN the rails on your layout, creating control rails that your sliding shoe pick up can contact. The rails are 027 height, but the extra pins here extend the rail height so that they are more in line with O gauge track. Some f the cars that use it include Operating Horse Car and Circus Car, lumber dump car, twin bin dump cars, and many more.
Some features include:
- Made from 1955-59
With Rail Clips 26-4
Silver tab version (vs the ones where the little metal tab is black)
CONDITION: Excellent. Shows some some light oxidation, moreso on the sides of the rails if you look close. Otherwise really nice and ready to use.
