Lionel 397



Produced from 1949-57. Came with a blue painted motor cover with GM decal, light silver-gray base with a hammertone finish. Red tray was unpainted. Included a #207 bag of Lionel Artifical Coal and a 364C controller. Operated by first dumping the coal into the red tray and then activating via the 364C controller. The coal ratcheted up the tray and was scooped up by the conveyor belt and loaded into a waiting hopper car. This was a real action packed accessory, expecially when coupled with the 456 coal ramp.
