(6-58532) Coal Train - Lou Caponi Signature Edition
Lou Caponi Signature Edition Coal Train Set -
LCCA steps up and offers the first of two products based on the coal industry. This Vulcan Switcher and two matching operating “shorty” coal hoppers can be ordered now. In the future, LCCA will announce and offer a Coal Ramp Accessory – the perfect accompaniment to this Coal Train Set.

One of last projects designed by the late Lou Caponi, this train set is painted and lettered for the Reading Mining Company and will be made for club members by Lionel®. The leading hopper has operating underbelly hatch doors which can be operated on all existing and the future coal ramps. The trailing hopper includes a simulated coal load and a lighted end-of-train device, the battery for which is cleverly hidden under the coal load. Both coal hoppers have die-cast, fully-sprung trucks and operating couplers.

Like other LCCA-sponsored train sets, the Lou Caponi Signature Edition – Coal Train Set is packaged in a unique set box decorated as a tribute to Lou’s creative spirit. As a FREE bonus, LCCA will include a new style, color-matched billboard frame, a commemorative billboard insert, and a statement of authenticity for this Coal Train Set.

Production quantity is limited to only 500 units. Do not miss out on this highly collectible train set in a special set box with a LCCA billboard frame and insert and an accompanying statement of authenticity.

Add this iconic Lionel O Gauge LCCA train set to your layout and get hauling!  

Freight is included in the posted Price at the Lionel Store.
