Lionel Texas Special

I recently purchased Lionel Texas Special F7 ABA units # 6-38217, 6-38218, 6-38219, with a 6-36660 caboose at an estate sale. I cannot locate them in Greensbergs or the Lionel catalog I have. Can anyone tell me what year they were offered by Lionel and were they part of a set? Thanks!

Sure they are not the FT models?

They are FT units from this set. It included the caboose.

The B unit was a separate sale item.

I took another look at the cartons and found a date Lionel LLC C2010. Also 71-8128-200 which must be a set #. I must not have the 2010 cat. vol. they were in. The powered A unit has dual motors, Trainsound & oper. headlight.  Thanks for your response.

Google is always your friend!  Several hits that answer all your questions.  But it sounds like you got the info you needed.  Catalog was 2010 vol2.

I believe the C2010 is a just copyright date in regards to the Lionel name & logo, it's not necessarily an indicator of the actual catalog announcement date or date of manufacture of the product itself.

BTW, that 6-36660 caboose has become quite the "hot" item, and dealers breaking up the set often want $125+ for it.  Probably 'cause it's a scale-sized item from a traditional O-Gauge (as opposed to a Standard-O set).  So it's of interest to both markets.
