The Nassau Lionel Operating Engineers is pleased to announce our 2019 offering of our commemorative car program, the Long Island Scale Milk Car.
Built in the early 1900’s and active through the 1950’s, these unique freight cars were equipped with twin glass-lined tanks to keep milk cool and fresh. They were typically coupled to passenger trains in order to get the fresh perishable cargo to it’s destination as quickly as possible. Lionel’s scale milk car is detailed with two aluminum plated milk tanks with chrome plated piping. The interior is viewable underneath the removable roof or when the hinge doors are opened. They also feature realistic die-cast metal passenger trucks and sprung buffers just like the prototype. (Graphics may differ slightly from above)
Orders must be received by February 29, 2020. The approximate delivery time was Sept / Oct 2020. Lionel's current schedule for shipment to us is late-December. If this schedule holds, we should have the club car shipped out to our members in January 2021.
