Lionel coaling station 2788

B F King ·
Hi Folks! Since most of us appear to be "mature" individuals, I am hoping someone can assist me in my search for the original instructions to the above mentioned building kit. I believe this was the predecessor to some of Lionel's later coaling stations and was a manually operated accessory. I currently am building the 12904 version of the Lionel coaling station and was wondering how Lionel made this an operating accessory. I think the instructions will show some of the "additional" parts...

Lionel coaling station lighting

B F King ·
I have found four Lionel structures that appear to be the same. The only differences I note are that some are supposedly illuminated. I purchased the 12904 kit and am looking to find out how the illuminated structures are lighted. The other numbers for this structure are 16874, 12736, and 81016. Does anyone have a picture of the installed lighting in this building? Also, I read somewhere that way back whenever this building had additional parts that made this a manually operated structure...

497 Coaling Station Question

Dan Padova ·
I want to run the 497 coaling station independently of track power. I know the wiring diagram for fixed voltage operation as outlined in the manual. My track power will be an MTH Z-1000. I don't want the Z-1000 track power to have anything to do with the operation of the coaling station. I will be using Williams dump cars which will dump using track power, but I want the coaling station to be powered by a separate AC power source, like an old KW. My question is this, since the track touches...

Post a write up and pictures of Homemade or Kit-bashed Layout Buildings you have made or modified or scratch built. I will start with one of my first kit-bashed Plasticville buildings , the Bachmann Coal Station, number 1975. The project was to make a raised roof, (which had a conveyor to spread coal), on the the Coal Station to replace the 1975 flat roof. I always liked the looks of that style coal station. I used 1/8 inch tempered Masonite with one smooth side. The smooth sides were scored...

matching coal tender

skippy too ·
I've recently got my Fathers 2036 Lionel engine up and running and now I'm looking for the matching coal tender. I've been told the original coal tender is not a whistler....the gentleman at the local train store wants to sell me a whistling coal tender but I would like to purchase a matching coal tender. I need to know the numbers of a matching coal tender for a 2036 engine.... thank you

Re: matching coal tender

rrvics ·
Skippy, the tender that came with the 2036 is a whistler. It is 6466W. The 2036 came in set no. 1463W which I have and was my first train for Christmas in 1950. The 6466W came with the 2036 in the set and as a separate sale engine as documented in the 1950 Lionel catalog.

I recently acquired a 752A, 3 Button control, Coaling Tower which seems to almost work. I can raise and lower the bucket, and I can close the bucket, by depressing the red button 1/2 way as in the instructions. The problem I am having is the bucket does not open when I release the red button when the bucket has entered the tower. According to the instructions the bucket is just supposed to open when I release the red button. Can anyone tell me what is supposed to cause the bucket to open? Is...

Re: 752A American Flyer Coaling tower

If I recall, it is indeed gravity as designed into the bucket. Over time, dirt and dried up lubricant can hinder the action. Try cleaning the hinges with mineral spirits or similar and use a very light oil to get the jaws opening and closing freely.

Re: 752A American Flyer Coaling tower

FLYERRICH, Thank you for that information. You are correct. I was testing it with no load, and therefore no weight to open the bucket. It is working pretty darn well now, especially considering it was in an Attic wrapped in newspaper since 1982. Thanks again, Aflyer

Re: Using Styrene

colorado hirailer ·
Wow...good work with styrene....rivaling "Brother Love". That Olds dealer looks similar to some I remember. And a scratchbuilt? RDC? I would like a scale-length RDC-3, and would have to scratch it to get one. I prefer wood, but had to scratchbuild a gas station with reverse curved roof in styrene. (well, I use styrene siding over a wooden frame for many buildings, but not to that extent).

Re: 497 Coaling Station Question

Jon G ·
If you want to isolate the coaling station from the base, the dump solenoid and the left-hand brush holder must be disconnected from the motor. This is where both are grounded to the frame. By removing these two wires, and connecting a lead to them, you can power the loader with the single lead from the controller and the new ground lead from the loader. Not sure how the Williams dump car works, but reply if you need to use the power blade on the loader and I can explain how to wire it.

Are you talking about the grey piece with the long shaft, with the rectangular piece at the end with the square hole in it? That sort of sounds like what you're trying to descibe. I'm assuming this is the coaling station you're talking about.

I have two buildings from my brothers and my childhood layout on my layout. They were both made by our Dad, about 1950, using his childhood pedal powered scroll or jigsaw. One building is a small train station, made from Masonite with the roof covered with model railroading roofing paper. The building has cuts scribed in to resemble siding. It has widows and other parts sawed out by jigsaw after drilling a hole and making inside cuts. Train station built in 1950, roof paper was originally...

The siding has model railroading brick paper glued to the side to simulate brick siding. The two garage doors have windows cutout with a pedal driven jigsaw.

Coal mat for cutout

Newtrainut ·
hello, recently I saw an ad for coal mats to make coal loads for coal cars.  The mats were about the size of 8.5 x 11 and were textured and looked like coal. These Mats could be cut with scissors to make any size coal load desired. However now I am unable to find that webpage.  Has anyone seen that webpage or something similar ?   I am in O scale but I guess it could be used for most scales as it is a custom cut.
