Lionel pw-6809

FLATCAR WITH USMC ANTIAIRCRAFT AND MEDICAL TRUCK

 

Built 1958-59. Red, unpainted plastic body with "LIONEL" and the number, 6809, heat stamped in white on each side. Features two loads, both USMC military units made by Pyro Plastics. An unpainted black plastic bracket secures the loads to the body of the flatcar. The loads are why this flatcar is so valuable because they are often either missing or replaced by reproductions. The real loads have the Pyro Plastics symbol molded into the plastic on the underside. This symbol is a triangle inside of a circle. In the triangle, "PYRO" is written in decreasing size from the P to the O. The original loads are difficult to find completely intact. Part or all of the anti-aircraft gun is usually broken.
