More 6464…The Never Ending 6464 Series

e*Train Issue: Sep 2003   |   Posted in: ,

By Dr. Paul Wassermann, Shannon Sikora and Bob Mintz

Our first contribution comes from the recent TCA 53rd Annual Convention.

#52275 TCA WESTERN DIVISION 2003 6464 TYPE “1954-2003” boxcar in orange was offered to the membership at large.

For those attending the actual convention, a red version banquet car of only 125 was made.

Here is a side-by-side comparison of the above so you can differentiate between the two.

HTOS announces the availability of their fifth rail car, the Lone Star Railway Express boxcar. This car is a Made in America, Lionel O-gauge, 6464 series boxcar.

It has a metal frame and die-cast spring loaded trucks. Their Lone star paint scheme appears to wrap around the car with a continuous blue band from the roof onto the doors of the boxcar. The HTOS club logo is on the left panel with a 6464-8903 reporting mark. Their beautiful Railway Express logo is featured on the right side panel. The log is a HTOS unique design consisting of a waving Texas flag on a light blue field, and is encircled by the words “Lone Star Railway Express in black.

or call 281/277-7630 and leave a voicemail with your request.

No collection should be without the weird, wild and wacky.

If imitation is the most sincerest form of flattery, even Lionel is making a copy of the 6464-100 WP GRAY WITH YELLOW FEATHER in their latest catalogue 2003 Volume 2 on page 72.
