|Like the X3464 A.T.S.F., this car was included in many sets, as well as being offered for separate sale from 1949 through to 1952 - making it common today. Using the same tooling as the 2454 series nine and a quarter inch box cars with only slight modifications to the frame, Lionel created this operating boxcar. The body, usually molded of clear plastic, was painted tan and the New York Central markings were heat-stamped in white. Although X3464 did appear on the car, the most prominent number displayed was "159000". Attached to the operating mechanism was a blue rubber man with arms spread. When energized by the electromagnet of an uncoupling track, a spring-loaded plunger released a spring-loaded mechanism, pushing the door open and advancing the man to the doorway.
