Looking for a box for Lionel 3459 Dump Car, circa 1946

Jstinson ·
Hello Train Friends. I recently acquired a fairly rare dump car, the Lionel 3459 Aluminum Dump Car.  Some research has led me to believe these cards were only made in 1946, so I am seeking a 3459 box from approximately that age so that my new treasure will be protected appropriately, Any suggestions (other then Ebay) or places to look would be greatly appreciated. This is my first "rare" car and I'm rather excited to get it all as authentic as possible. If anyone on here has one they...

When I go to York next week I an interested in finding an Amfleet Cab Control End Car Lionel (6-35454) with a listed length of approximately 19”. Wondering if it will operate OK on 0-31/0-36 curves?

I need help with how the operating pieces work together.  I have included a picture of what I have but it does not seem correct to me.  There is no info on this car in the Postwar repair manual, it only speaks to hooking it up to the RCS.   I assume the solenoid plunger is in the up position and goes down to dump the bin.  The spring returns the plunger but what returns the bin to the level position?

Over the many years I've been in this hobby, I never took the time to learn why passenger car roofs were built in the various configurations that came down the pike. I speaking of heavy weight cars.

Review of Menards cars in Classic Trains

rrman ·
While thumbing through the Classic Trains magazine at the store, there was a nice review of the Menards cars.  The take away is that this was a great low cost way to fill out your consist and fill the yards rather than dropping alot of $$ on a few high detailed "rivet counted" cars (agreed! ). Know I will get that cable car, though maybe too long overhang of my curves but can park it next to, appropriately, the Menards Power station.

Hello, first of all, sorry if this is redundant, but, when spending precious train dollars, I had better not be hasty and make the wrong choice.

The answer was that it would be able to activate recordings stored in the sensor track and (for legacy) be able to trigger the 8 programmable "actions" contained within the sensor track. My...
