United States Navy
Diesel Freight Set

Page Last Updated 1/18/12

Here's the infamous United States Navy diesel freight set from 1960. The all-blue diesel, caboose and freight cars makes a colorful and attractive set. Additionally, the outfit is one of the rarest and most sought-after postwar Lionel sets.
