Since a lot of people have been posting their prewar tunnels, I decided I’d post mine as well as some vehicles and a new addition about which I’m quite curious. Last few pictures, Help in identifying would be very appreciated!!:
Got both of these from Pop- on the left is the 18 inch, non-lined Lionel tunnel with a 604 observation headed through. On the right is what I believe is a general model corporation tunnel. Vehicles in the background are: Matchbox super king missle launcher, Corgi British police car on top of the red trailer with white wheels, unknown maker for both auto carriers and I think, but am not sure, the red trucks pulling them are Hubley( I knew what one was, definitively, but forgot a lot after my head injury).
sticker inside the plaster tunnel: G. C. M. CO. For a whomping .59$! My Grammy still has another tunnel of this materialthat curves in the attic that I really need to check out.
I assume this was a bell or something electronic as there’s a wire connected to it.
as you can seee, no markings. I was going through all the signals on historytoy.com, Ives society, and other site made by KBN, Ives, Bing, Marx, Flyer Lionel, Märklin, and more. A couple base look-a-likes and a few semaphores but none that paired together. Ideas anyone?? I like the piece- compared to the other tinplate accessory signals I liked this one and as I said the base caught my eye. Plus, it’s just a neat looking semaphore That I thought would look nice on my layout.
