Description

*********LIONEL PREWARNo. 045AUTOMATIC GATEMAN1937 – 1942…………………………………….AS SHOWN, THIS IS IN VERY NICE CONDITION.  WHEN WE GOT THIS, THE PREVIOUS OWNER HAD APPARENTLY TINKERED WITH IT (2 TABS BROKEN OFF BOTTOM) AND HAD ENDED UP WITH BOTH TERMINALS WIRED TO GROUND??? – GUESS THEY WONDERED WHY IT DIDN’T WORK.  ANYWAY, GOT THAT SQUARED AWAY REWIRED THE LIGHT AND NOW IT WORKS GREAT AGAIN – NO DAMAGE.  AS YOU MAY BE AWARE, THE 2 TABS THAT ARE BROKEN OFF REALLY DON’T HOLD IT TOGETHER; IT STAYS TOGETHER ON ITS OWN.  COMES WITH ORIGINAL TRIP AND BOX BUT NO BOX INSERT OR INSTRUCTION SHEET.   BOX IS NICE N’ SOLID WITH NO WATER DAMAGE.  BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE PHOTOS. PLEASE NOTE :
