    I came across this old Lionel box today in a local antique store.. any idea how old it might be and what set it belongs to?


    Click on the thumbnail to see the pic.

    There's some O-gauge track, a transformer, and an empty locomotive box inside.

    Any info would be appreciated.

    I was thinking 1920's also.. it's a NY address for Lionel on the box. Anyways, I was short of cash so will probably go back for it tomorrow. Hopefully it will still be there.

    EDIT: Going to Lionel's site and checking the timeline, there's a similar picture there for 1918, picturing a boy in a similar pose and clothes.

    I went back today and picked this box up.. there are inside 8 pieces of curved track and a Jefferson Midget Toy Transformer in the original box..

    This is the master box for the #347 Lionel train set from 1926.

    Will list it on eBay tomorrow (Saturday)... thanks for your help!
