History
The 3830 Flatcar with Submarine was produced for four years, 1960 thru 1963. It is the most common of the three submarine flatcars Lionel produced during the postwar era.

The 3830 is part of Lionel's "Space & Military" series. As with many of the items from that series, there are delicate parts that are prone to damage due to improper handling. Locating a complete, all original flatcar with submarine is a difficult task as few have survived intact.

Features
Standard features of the 3830 include: unpainted blue flatcar with white lettering, AAR trucks and usually one operating and one fixed coupler. There are reported variations having two operating couplers, but never two fixed couplers. Additionally, there are two wire retainers mounted on top of the flatcar used to secure the sub to freight car.

The submarine is molded in gray with black lettering, a black periscope and a black propeller.

Additional Detail, Photos & Box Information
The length of this flatcar is approximately 11 1/4" long (coupler to coupler).

Only Known Variation - All 3830's have unpainted blue flatcars with a gray submarine.
