History
The 3619 Helicopter Reconnaissance Car is another whimsical offering by Lionel in the early 1960ís in its Space and Military series. Itís safe to say there is no prototype box car where its roof opens and a helicopter is launched from inside the box car!

The Helicopter Reconnaissance Car is a complicated car with a fragile helicopter. The box car is frequently found with the helicopter either damaged or missing as well as damage to the opening roof sections. In either case, locating a complete and undamaged box car is difficult and one with an undamaged original helicopter is scarce.

Features
Standard features on the 3619 include: unpainted yellow body with red and black lettering, two-piece unpainted black roof, plunger operated launching mechanism plus a brakewheel and AAR trucks with operating couplers.

In addition to the box car, a red HO scale helicopter was included with this car.Original helicopters are frequently damaged or missing.
