History
Outfit 12800 is noted for being one of the most colorful and attractive postwar sets ever produced by the original Lionel corporation. With its striking red, white and blue theme, collectors and operators continue to seek this set. Regarding the components of this set, the 2346 B & M GP-9 diesel is the only new-for-1965 item in this set, the remaining rolling stock items were all previously issued items.
