TTOS Baby Madison Convention Set for trade or sale

ChasP ·
I have a set of TTOS Convention baby Madison passenger cars from 1974 through 1977 including an extra 9512 coach. I intended to repaint them into the Pullman Green Madisons I remember from my youth, but didn't want to proceed without giving a TTOS member the option to obtain them as a collection . All appear to be in original boxes in apparent unused condition though they appear to have been out of the boxes at some point, and the box ends are faded and in some cases torn, with most...

Re: 2454 series box car

You must remember, they were trying to get their trains out for the first time in four years. The demand was super high and American Flyer was introducing a new S scale system. Automobiles, housing, everything was in huge demand. If you could find a Lionel set in those days you were lucky and you sure wouldn't take it back for bad graphics. Like all history you need to put yourself in the time period to truly understand it. By the way while I don't run the old cars I still love those small...

2454 series box car

Bobby G ·
I'm most fond of the 2454 series and 6454 series boxcars produced by Lionel right after the war. If they are in VG to LN condition I just keep acquiring them though I have duplicates upon duplicates. I just purchased yet another X2454 Baby Ruth boxcar. Though it itself is in VG plus condition, I was intrigued by how poorly the heated stamping was on one side. I was of the impression that nothing would leave the factory looking this bad. How predictable might this show up? Could it be that...

The Windows and roof are one piece on these cars. Jon

Also, there were two runs made. One required physically cutting off plastic tabs to access the interior. This was soon replaced by the standard "window wedge" design still in use on the PE cars today. Jon

Window strips have never been made for those cars. Starting in 1986, the cars have routinely had "silhouette" figures in the windows, but as Jon mentioned above, you'd have to replace the entire window/roof part to add them to your Milwaukee cars. TRW

Someone tried to touch up the lettering and didn't do a very good job. That is not a heat stamp gone awry. Looks like they used a fine Sharpie pen. Pete

I agree with Pete. That is not a heat stamping problem; someone tried to paint over it and it didn’t go well.

To me it looks like the heat stamp was too heavy and melted the plastic and didn't transfer the ink from the ribbon well.

Even have two Southern Pacific boxcars that I have never seen in Lionel's catalog. Don I am aware of a 6454 Southern Pacific boxcar. Without looking, I think it is brown. There is a variation in the herald. Some cars have the "SP" herald with an unbroken circle, others have a break in the circle. In my experience, it is one of the less common cars. Is yours something different?

Re: 2454 series box car

Dennis Holler ·
I think there may be a shade variation on the SP as well. Too lazy to go look though! I agree, the circle variation isn't that hard to locate with the internet. A train of 2454's and 6454's makes for a nice looking consist and not as long as full size cars. Only downside is you need good clean wheels and trucks or they get heavy quick!

Had to look at Tandem Associates. They do list a color variation. Might also be a door variation (metal versus plastic). I have several, I think all of mine are brown, with both herald variations. Don't know about the doors, I would have to dig them out of storage. I agree that a train of 2454 and 6454 boxcars looks great.

As for the blotched lettering, if its due to a Sharpie, the ink is soluable on alcohol. If you dampen a towel in alcohol and wipe it over the letters and see black on the towel its from a pen. Quick wipes with a small paint brush, Q tip or towel should reduce it, may not remove it completely if the ink has stained the paint. Don't soak it in alcohol as it will eventually soften the paint. Stop if you see yellow on your wiper and let it dry. As for the SP cars, I think all the red brown cars...

that they do. I did that once, put mine behind my RK M1a...made a great train with an N5c at the end.One of the first shows I went to a guy had a box of 2454/6454 in a junk box and I brought the whole thing home,and that started me off on rebuilds.

to me, it doesn't look like a sharpie. Just looks like a bad stamp job. I really like the 6454/2454/3464 boxcars. On the new small PW layout I'm building they work perfectly due to the short size. They are heavy though once you get a bunch together.

Just want to thank everyone that responded to my inquiry of the heat stamping on my Baby Ruth X2454. Some thought it was indeed poor heat stamp job. Some thought it was just poor cover up. Truth probably lies in the middle. But anyway it's all what makes this hobby so much fun and why we love it so. Just joined the forum and that was my first post and, again, thanks for all your input.

Sorry that I didn't read the sale rules that a price was needed in the event of a sale. I would sell the entire set for $300 plus shipping, but really prefer a trade so I can assemble a complete Pullman set. Thanks all for your patience!

Scott Kay ·
Wow! $25 for that kit of castings, keyword is "castings" - this is not even a complete locomotive. That must have been a fortune back then (1946). Even if this was MSRP and the street price was 40% less, that is still expensive. According to the link below, an average month's rent in 1946 was $35 and the average annual income was $2600. And people say O scale is expensive today; however, in reality, they are practically giving away the O scale trains today .
