1970 MPC CONSUMER CATALOG POSTER
|The first catalog for the modern era MPC Lionel trains. This one is a lot rarer than you think. Basically a 10 paged catalog that folds out into a 22" by 34" Lionel poster. General Mills didn't have alot to offer in 1970. Mostly they were using up old postwar inventory. Still new roadnames were introduced. Items included; Illinois Central GP-9, S.F. Alco AA's, the start of MPC's 9200 series boxcars, and much more. 1970 saw alot of variations on miss printed cars(mostly the I.C. cars). Also all the accessories were war postwar leftovers. They were still using smoke pellets in the bottle. Most copies of this catalog didn't survie, kids hung the poster up. Interesting note that MPC states at the top page Lionel started in 1903(1903-1970)? If your looking to fill some holes in your collection, this is a great catalog.
