6464-225 Southern Pacific


Product Description

Production:  1954 - 1956

The 6464-225 Southern Pacific box car was introduced in Lionels second year of 6464 boxcar style production -- 1954. The theme of the 6464 series boxcars was to market a realistic and almost scale-like box car rarely seen in mass produced toy trains. The 6464-style box cars were an immediate success and remained in the Lionel catalogue up until it's final year of postwar production, 1969. Even today, all 6464-style box cars remain a favorite of collectors and operators.

The 6464-225 Southern Pacific is a moderately common car. It was available as a separate sale box car as well as being included in only one 1954 027 gauge freight set lead by the 2245 Texas Special F3 diesel. The realistic, yet rather dull, black paint scheme did not attract many buyers to it in the mid-1950s and accounts for the lack of widespread availability in todays marketplace. Clean quality cars are hard to find.

The 6464-225 Great Northern included the following standard features: black painted shell with white and yellow lettering, single block sliding doors, bar-end trucks with two operating couplers plus a single brakewheel.
