Lionel 31733



Leaving a plume of smoke and signaling with a melodious "hoot!" from its whistle, the workhorse dockside switcher signals its approach hauling a red-hot cargo straight from the blast furnace. This all-new set offers a classic unit train from the steel industry. Both the cars and the locomotive are marked with logos of the famous western Pennsylvania steel company, Jones & Laughlin, once one of the largest in the U.S. Both the locomotive and cars are built almost entirely of die-cast metal. Each car even includes a realistic, flickering slag load.
