History
Unquestionably, the 3472 was Lionel most popular accessory. During its four-year run, it is estimated more than 8 million milk cars sets were sold!

The 3472 Automated Refrigerator Milk Car consisted of two components -- a 3472 operating milk car and a delivery stand. To this day the operating milk car remains a popular accessory as it is a reliable accessory and only occassionally needing a cleaning or minor adjustment.

Features
Standard features of the 3472 Automated Refrigerated Milk Car set include:
