Most Lionel collectors acknowledge the 1966 catalogue as Lionel's final 'all-new' postwar catalogue. It's easy to see the company support behind new and traditional product offerings for the year. Even the sufficient listing of solid and dependable motive power and rolling stock was respectable -- and at 40 pages, the catalogue was similar to calalogues offered in the 1940's and 1950's.
Unfortunately, 1966 also marked the final year of many large Lionel trademark items. Products making their final appearance during the postwar era include: the full-scale 773 Hudson, F3, extruded aluminum passenger cars, operating milk car (3662) and last but certainly not least, the final year of the ZW transformer, Super "O" track and O gauge track!
