History
The 3482 was Lionel's final version of the small operating milk car. Beginning with the 3462 Milk Car in 1947, then the famous 3472 in 1949 and finally the 3482 offered in 1954 -- it is estimated the three different small operating milk cars sold more than 12 million sets in the the nine year production run!

The 3482 Automated Refrigerator Milk Car consisted of two main components -- a 3482 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 3482 Automatic Refrigerated Milk Car set include:
