Lionel 21788



  • Please note set does not include track and transformer. See last paragraph below
  • This set was introduced in 1959, and we thought you would enjoy the original catalog pages showing all it can do
  • In addition to being equipped with full command control and magnetraction, engine # 44 carries four missiles, set to launch at your command
  • Develope your skills and let your children also use the set once in a while to see who can hit the exploding ammunition dump (included) with a missile fired from the moving or stationery train
  • Engine also has a headlight, flashing red light on roof, operator and missile firing console, operating couplers and Lionel's original, powerful pullmore motor
  • A helicopter launches from the helicopter car at the push of a button for a reconnaissance mission
  • Supporting the action are a # 6814 caboose with stretcher and oxygen tanks, and two flatcars (6844 and6823) loaded with more missiles
  • Launch your missiles and destroy the exploding ammo dump with a direct hit. A real blast from the past with everything needed to defend your layout from attack
  • Includes 943 exploding ammo dump
  • Let me repeat myself, this locomotive features TrainMaster Command Control--able to run in command control or Conventional Transformer Control. Fire the missiles, uncouple anywhere on the layout and control everything else using the TMCC CAB 1 Remote Controller
  • All this means an awesome amount of play value never before available in one set
  • Rolling stock has die cast sprung trucks and operating couplers
  • If you have track and transformer, all features will operate on existing layouts without TMCC, using a conventional transformer and a remote uncoupling track
  • If you want to add the Remote Control (TMCC)Equipment to an existing layout, purchase the 6-12969 (listed under the track and transformer category) which contains everything needed to operate this train and up to 10 more trains with the Lionel Handheld controller
