1953 was an impressive year for Lionel trains. With an increased focus on larger, scale-like trains, several new offering replaced the older, traditional freight cars. For example, the larger 6415 tank car replaced the 6465, the 6417 porthole caboose replaced the 6457 and most noteworthy was the introduction of the 6464-series box cars replacing the 6454-series box car.
On the paper front, Lionel continued to produce numerous booklets, posters, catalogues and more. These lesser known accessory booklets, fold-out posters and distributor catalogues have become increasing harder-to-find in recent years.
