6425 Gulf


Product Description

Production:  1956 - 1958

The 6425 Gulf triple-dome tank car was one of only two triple-dome tankers produced by Lionel in the postwar era -- the other being the 6415 Sunoco. Lionels model is a detailed and realistic representation of an actual 70 ton tank car. The 6425 Gulf tank car is hard to locate and generally in less than collectable condition.

During the three year production cycle, the 6425 kept getting elevated in status with its inclusion in Lionel catalogued sets. For 1956, the 6425 was included in one 027 gauge freight set. Then for 1957, it was include in two different O gauge sets and for its finale in 1958, the 6425 Gulf tank car was included in one Super O freight set.

Standard features of the 6425 include: painted silver tank, molded black plastic frame, metal handrails, two metal ladders, brakestand with brakewheel, bar-end trucks, two operating couplers plus a filler cap next to each dome. The lettering is always blue.

Additional Detail, Photos & Box Information
The filler caps are the most fragile portion of the tank car. It is quite common to find some -- or all -- of the filler caps broken off of the shell.
