Lionel 18378



Lionel is proud to offer the MTA R-27 Subway Cars. Coupled in semi-permanent married pairs, these cars entered service in 1960 and often traveled to Manhattan through the tunnel, as indicated by the QT designation on the sign board. The R-27 cars were intially dressed in a kale green baked enamel finish, and they served New York City until the early 1990s. Featuring the Legacy System-the next generation in TrainMaster Command Control-the R-27 has opening doors and authentic subway sounds. Listen for the operator announcing the subway stop near the former Lionel office in Manhattan. The cars also feature prototypical markings and signage for service in the early 1960s. An additional 2-Pack is available to create a longer train.
