150 Telegraph Pole Set
Production: 1947 - 1950
The 150 Telegraph Pole Set was available for four years and was an interesting, creative and prototypical new accessory for the small towns built along the Lionel railroad. Unfortunately, this accessory was a poor seller and few exist today, especially in collector condition. For those having multiple sets of the Telegraph Pole Set, it does make for animpressive looking layout when connected along a layout's main line.
The 150 Telegraph Pole Set included the following items: Six brown plastic poles simulating telegraph poles, each with the Circle L Lionel logo molded into the lower portion of each pole plus six metal track clips.
When found today, most of the track clips have some portion of rust or oxidation on each of the pole bases.
