Lionel continued to introduce original and innovative locomotive and rolling stock products in their 1948 annual catalogue. All of the new items were realistic replicas of typical trains and accessories seen throughout the United States in the 1940's.
The most impressive addition to the 1948 product line was the F-3 AA diesel. Surprisingly, these diesels are almost lost in the catalogue -- as it is not until page 20 before you see the ground-breaking new locomotive! Other new for 48 items include the 6454 box car series, 6465 two-dome tank car and 2400 series passenger cars.
