At Gunrunner John's suggestion, here is a featured thread for uploading old instruction manuals and other out-of-print reference documents.

Original Post

I have a few old tinplate manuals.   This was my dad's copy c. 1925

This one is not strictly electrical, but it's pretty cool.  Another of my dad's originals.

Any chance you could just embed the thumbnails and not expand all the photos?  It takes a lot longer to find what you're looking for if each post is pages long.  With a description, there's no need to actually have the expanded full-size graphic.

Just a caveat guys:  be careful about posting materials that have been the subject of copyrights.  I expect most Lionel pubs have been.  I express no opinion on whether any copyrights have expired or not.

 

Expecting that there will be a fusillade of complaints, I state that I am only raising a caution flag and will not partiicpate in any discussions.  If you don't like copyrights, take it up with your elected lawmakers.

FYI:  ATC style blade circuit breakers fit common female spade connectors!

Great idea and I can see I'll be busy scanning numerous old manuals.

 

SUGGESTION for all:  Please include the year of publication in the original post.  Many of LIONEL's operating manuals use similar covers and titles.  Perhaps others do as well; probably easier to include the year in the original post than leaving it in the thumbnail.
