613 Union Pacific
The 613 Union Pacific NW2 Switcher was produced for only one year -- 1958 -- and is one of the rarest NW2 switchers produced by Lionel during the postwar era. The 613 was available as a separate sale item as well as well as being included in one freight set.
It's unfortunate this diesel did not have a longer production run. Both collectors and operators seek out this diesel because of its colorful and attractive paint scheme and graphics.
Standard features of the 613 Union Pacific switcher include: yellow and gray painted body with red lettering and side stripes, two-axle Magnetraction, die-cast trucks, three-position E-unit, illumination headlight and plastic non-operating couplers. The 613 shell is mounted to a black sheet-metal frame with black end-railings. Also included are a simulated gold bell and ornamental silver horn mounted on the shell.
Additional Detail, Photos & Box Information
The length of the 613 is approximately 12 1/2" long (coupler to coupler).
Only Known Variation - All 613's are painted yellow and gray with red lettering and side stripes.
