This accessory has a BLACK metal base and it came with a plastic BROWN platform and ORANGE fork lift with BLUE man and a WHITE crane similar to what was used on the No. 464 Operating Lumber Mill. A No. 90 Controller was included and was used to control the unloading of the flat car.
Two No. 264-28 instruction sheets were issued for the Fork Lift Platform. The first dated 7-57 is printed with BROWN ink on YELLOW paper. The second sheet that is dated 8-58 is printed with BLUE or BLACK ink on WHITE paper.
Lionel deemed it necessary to issue a special instruction sheet No. 1733 dated 9-57 that they labeled "IMPORTANT" and this sheet was included with the platform in addition to the regular instruction sheet.
This sheet instructs the owner to install of the stakes on the car with the flat side facing in to prevent the fork lift from riding the sections of lumber up the edge of the stake.
Also, it suggests that if there is hesitation in the operation of the fork lift then the surfaces should be cleaned. Lubricants of any type should not be used. Lionel deemed these instructions vital to the proper operation of this accessory.
This sheet was printed with BLUE ink on WHITE paper, or with BLACK ink on YELLOW or WHITE paper and is shown below.
Dimensions: 10 inches long, 10-5/8 inches wide, 5-1/2 inches high.
