6556 MKT Stock Car

6556a.jpg

Production: 1958

History
The 6556 Missouri, Kansas & Texas / Katy Stock Car was available for only a single year -- 1958. This style freight car was classified by Lionel as a bi-level stock car. During the postwar era, Lionel produced the bi-level stock car with three different roadnames: 6356 New York Central, 6376 Circus car and 6556 Katy. The Katy version was the last of the three stock cars produced by the Lionel Corporation. Additionally, it is the hardest of the three to locate -- almost being rare in status.

Features
Standard features on the 6556 include: red painted body with white lettering, four unpainted white sliding doors, single brakewheel plus bar-end trucks with tab couplers.

Additional Detail, Photos & Box Information
A common problem with the 6556 is the red painted body. This car is easily prone to fading or dullness if incorrectly cleaned or washed. Whenever handling or cleaning the car, extreme care should be taken with the red painted area.

The length of the 6556 bi-level stock car is approximately 11 1/2" long (coupler to coupler).

Only Known Variation - Shown in the photo above - All are painted red with white lettering.
