Rare Lionel Standard Gauge 8 Trolley from 1908-14 Great Example
Rare Lionel standard gauge 8 Trolley. Made between 1908 and 1914. A great example - some paint is flaking as shown in the photographs.
In remarkable shape considering it is over a century old! There were five versions of this trolley produced - this is the second version, featuring a 20 and a quarter inch roof (making it the largest Lionel trolley ever produced), dark green sides, roof, platform, and lower panels, eleven cream windows, door, clerestory roof, maroon steps and coupler supports, rubber stamped lettering No.
8 PAY AS YOU ENTER No. 8, large perforated steps, large vestibule, one headlight, 10-series (single-eyelet) trucks, no couplers, and a single motor. In overall Very Good (C6) condition.
