Lionel 8690 trolley
Posted by trains2353 on Friday, October 06, 2017 9:29 AM

Here's my Lionel 8690 trolley. I have the correct rubber bumbers for it. But it looks like the trolley chassis is from a 60 trolley as it has the metal bumpers. There is no way the bumpers will fit that. All the pics I've looked of the 8690 shows the correct blue rubber bumpers. The correct part number of the slide to fit the rubber bumpers is 8490-79.

Any ideas? Some one had a busted up 60 trolley and put a 8690 body on it?

Probably an 8690 body on a postwar chassis.
You would need a modern era reversing slide / bumper bracket to use those bumpers. The part was modified to use then.
