Lionel 3 Rail
Lionel 610 & 612

I thought you would like to see another before /after project. This was a recent purchase. The cars date back to 1925. The six windows, the circular railing on the observation and lighting are period features .The exterior paint was stripped or just worn off. Using scotchbrite and rubbing compound I cleaned up the exterior to repaint.



Actually they are numbered 610 and 612. I have not stamped them yet.
