History
The 3361 Log Dump flatcar was introduced in 1955. It always included five stained logs as the regular load. The 3361 log dump flatcar replaced the 3461 as the standard log dump car in Lionel's product line.

Unloading the earlier 3461 log dump car required the operator to press the unload button only once on a section of remote control track. This new-style log dump car required the operator to press the unload button a series of times. The new design used a rachet-type cam to slowly lift the dump tray and is generally considered an improvement over the 3461 log dump car. No longer were logs sent 'catapulting' all over your layout.

Features
Standard features of the 3361 included: unpainted gray frame with black lettering, two operatng bar-end trucks and an unloading tray. The tray was automatically set to the lower position by pressing the unload button one additional time after the tray was at the highest unloading point.

Five stained logs were always includes with the 3361. Wheather sold as a spearate sale item or in a set, the 3361 always included a # 160 Dump Bin. For the first half of production Lionel included the shorter version of the dump bin while the second half included the longer version. Additionally, the number on the car is always 336155. The last two digits representing the year the item was introduced -- 1955 for this car.
