2527 US Army Five Car Military Set
Nicknamed The Missile Launcher Outfit by Lionel, set 2527 was available in 1959 and 1960. Components of this set reflect a time and period within American history when the public's concern focused on protecting the country. This preoccupation was reflected in many Lionel train sets. For set 2527, all five freight cars carried military-themed loads.
Although the set can be viewed as whimsical, it represents the beginning of Lionels final decade of postwar production. Lionel had changed its focus from prototypical freight cars of the 1940's and 1950's to imaginative space and military trains of the 1960's.
Standard components of this set include:
- 44 Army missile launcher
- 3419 Flatcar with helicopter
- 6175 Flatcar with rockets
- 6823 Flatcar with IRBM missiles
- 6844 Missile carrying flatcar
- 6814 Medical first-aid caboose
- 943 Exploding ammo dump
- Plus: Super 0 track, lubricant, billboards and instruction booklets.
