SPACE AND MILITARY 2
52 WORDS

  1. Only once during the time that J. L. (_ _ _ _ _) headed Lionel did the company produce a train with (_ _ _) as it’s reason for existing.
  2. Pulling two No. 702 (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) cars, called (_ _ _ _ _ _) cars in the catalogs, or two No. 900 (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) boxcars, was the No. 203 (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) locomotive.
  3. Painted battleship (_ _ _ _) and looking like a steeple-cab gone bad, the (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) No. 203 let boys “Bring Up Siege (_ _ _ _) On Tracks!” as the 1917 catalog commanded.
  4. A. C. (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) traveled to (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) in 1917 in an attempt to save (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) after a government committee suggested that toys should be abolished for the duration.  Testifying that “A boy wants (_ _ _) not education.  Yet through the kind of toy (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) toy manufacturers are turning out, he gets both.”
  5. The American (_ _ _ _ _) No. 25056 Rocket (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) and (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) Car did provide both.  Available (_ _ _ _) in 1959, and only in the (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) train set, the 25056 was actually two (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) cars in one.
  6. “The U. S. (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) Are On The Move!” declared the (_ _ _ _ _ _) catalog for 1958.  A favorite O-27 set from that year was the No. 1591 which featured (_ _ _ _) brand new items.
  7. Leading the way was the (_ _ _ _) No. 212 U. S. M. C. (_ _ _ _) diesel followed by the three (_ _ _) flatcars to which Lionel attached “(_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ - _ _ _ _ _)”, as the loads purchased from (_ _ _ _) Plastics were called.  A No. 6017-50 SP type caboose with (_ _ _ _ _) heat-stamped markings brought up the rear.
  8. The military vehicles Lionel bought for the six cars that carried them included a (_ _ _ _) with a revolving turret, as seen on the 6803, a truck with (_ _ _ _ - _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) guns as used on the 6804 and a (_ _ _ _), which came with the No. 6807.
  9. In 1962, Lionel produced three matching O-27 and HO outfits for (_ _ _ _ _) Roebuck and Co.  Two of them included “(_ _ _ _ _) age” cars.  Sets 49 N 9656 and 79 N 9905C pulled helicopter, (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) and (_ _ _ _ _) missile launching cars plus O-27 and HO (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) boxcars.  Sets 49 N 9655 and 79 N 9904C pulled two of the same cars plus the (_ _ _ _ _ _) Capsule Carrying Cars.
  10. Lionel’s last hurrah for Sears (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) came in 1964.  Shown alongside the No. 79 N 9807L Giant Steam (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _), (which came with the No. 345 Culvert (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _), two switches and a No. 321 (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) bridge) was the No. 49 N 9820 New (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) Freighter.
  11. This set included the No. 3666 Minuteman boxcar with the (_ _ _ _) Tom (_ _ _ _ _ _) made just for Sears.  A No 6470 (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) boxcar, an unnumbered flatcar with a tank, the No. 347 Cannon Firing (_ _ _ _ _) Set and a No. 975-1 (_ _ _ _ _) of toy (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) added excitement to this outfit.
  12. Five years prior, Sears was offering the No. 79 N 09682K Lionel (_ _ _ _ _ _) Age Set.  With the No. 44 U. S. (_ _ _ _) Mobile Missile Launcher on the point of an all military consist of five cars plus a No. 175 (_ _ _ _ _ _) Launcher, this outfit demonstrated how far(?) (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) had come since the No. 203 of 1917.
