Lionel pw-6461

SHORT GRAY TRANSFORMER FLATCAR

 

This car was built in 1949-50, and was an updated version of the 2461 from the pervious couple of years. The main difference is that the 6461 has magnetic couplers instead of coil couplers. Other than that, it's pretty much the same. It has a gray diecast body with black rubber stamped lettering and staple end trucks. The transformer is made of black plastic and has a decal on the top of just one side. It is secured to the flatcar with two screws. It has four plastic insulators - two that stick straight up and two smaller ones that stick out on an angle. The originals were brittle and are commonly broken, missing, or replaced with reproductions. An original insulator will be yellowed somewhat with age. A reproduction will probably be close to pure white and unaged.
