Famously dubbed the “Anniversary Set” by many collectors, #1464W is one of the most desirable of all Lionel postwar sets.
Introduced in 1950, it’s pulled by the early high-caliber version of Lionel’s Alco with a die-cast metal frame, rear steps, illuminated number boards, and couplers equipped on both the front and rear. The most desirable version of the U.P. Alco sporting a grey nose and grey truck side frames is included in this special re-issue. The passenger cars in the Anniversary set were new, too, painted yellow with grey roofs to match the stunning Alco s locomotives.
