RED, WHITE & BLUE 2
48 WORDS

  1. Lionel returned the No. 89 (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) to their product line in 1956 after a (_ _ _ _ _ _ - _ _ _) year absence.
  2. The new No. 89, unlike it’s prewar predecessor, was made of (_ _ _ _ _ _ _).  The removable 11 inch (_ _ _ _) was inserted into a 3 ¼ inch (_ _ _ _ _ _) base that had (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) molded into it.
  3. There were also small squares of (_ _ _ _ _ _) on the top of the base and like the No. 89 of 1923, the 48 (_ _ _ _) flag could be raised and lowered.  A small blue Lionel (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) accompanied the (_ _ _ _ _ - _ _ _ - _ _ _ _ _ _ _) through 1958.
  4. It wasn’t until 1983 that a (_ _ _ _ _) star flag flew over Lionelville.  But no matter how many stars Lionel’s (_ _ _ _ _) had, model railroaders were always sure to “Let it wave (_ _ _ _ _ _ _)” as the 1923 catalog told them to do.
  5. The 6464 series of (_ _ _ _) scale boxcars became more (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) in 1955 with the addition of the No. 6464-275 (_ _ _ _ _) of (_ _ _ _ _).
  6. It’s (_ _ _ - _ _ _ _ _ - _ _ _ - _ _ _ _) paint scheme bore lettering for the (_ _ _ _ _ _) and (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) railroad and necessitated the creation of the multiple (_ _ _ _) board door.
  7. Reversing the scheme of the (_ _ _ _) roofed BAR car was the No. 3428 Operating (_ _ _ _) Car of 1959 and the non-operating No. 6428 of 1960.  Both were Railway (_ _ _ _) Office cars but the man in the 3428 could deliver (_ _ _ _ _ _ - _ _ _ _ _ _) Mail to stops along the line.
  8. The No. 3428 was included in the O-27 No. 1640W “(_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) Special” outfit of 1960.  Pulled by (_ _ _) nosed No. 218 Santa Fe (_ _ _ _) diesels, the set also included three blue-striped 2400 series cars, paper (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) and a bag of Plasticville (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _).
  9. 1963 saw the addition of an outfit that spread the red, (_ _ _ _ _) and blue across all six of it’s components.  The blue No. 624 (_ _ _ _ _ - _ _) NW2 pulled the light blue No. 3410 (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) Launching Car, white No. 6014 (_ _ _ _ _ _) boxcar, red No. 6059 M& St. L. (_ _ _ _ _ _ _), No. 6463 (_ _ _ _ _ _) Fuel 2-dome tanker and the car that gave this set it’s name.
  10. The (_ _ _ _ _) - Prober, as outfit No. 11341 was titled, featured the No. 6407 Flatcar with the red, white & blue (_ _ _ _ _ _ _).  Just as the real (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) Project was using, the rocket made by (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) Plastics mimicked a (_ - _ - _ _ _ _) Redstone missile, though the models Lionel purchased lacked the (_ _ _ _ _ _ - _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) in the spacecraft base.
  11. Another very red, white & blue set was outfit No. 12800 packaged in 1966.  The No. 2346 (_ _ _ _ _ _) and Maine GP9 was accompanied by the Nos. 6464-475 (_ _ _ _ _ _) and 6017-110 caboose in (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) blue, white and black paint schemes.
  12. The very red No. 6436-100 Lehigh (_ _ _ _ _ _) hopper carried coal and the silver No. 6415-25 (_ _ _ _ _ _) dome tank car brought oil to the (_ _ _ _ _ _) and furnaces of (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) industry while the No. 6428 kept the mail moving.

  4. It wasn’t until 1983 that a (FIFTY) star flag flew over Lionelville.  But no matter how many stars Lionel’s (FLAGS) had, model railroaders were always sure to “Let it wave (PROUDLY)” as the 1923 catalog told them to do.
