Lionel Trains Lamp Post No. 76The Boulevard Lamps No. 76 was available for 10 years, beginning in 1959 until 1969 with the exception of 1967 when they were not produced. These boulevard lamps came packaged three to a box, and during this period were contained in four different types of boxes including the B76 blister packaging shown to the right which was produced in 1966.

This lamp is essentially a plastic version of the No. 71. The lamp globe was opaque plastic and was perceptively different from those that are found on the No. 71 indicating that Lionel, at the very least, modified this mold. The globe concealed a clear pin-type 14 volt L19 plug-in type bulb. The lamp socket that holds this bulb can be removed for servicing by gently twisting and pulling it upward. It would light from either accessory voltage, or track current with the use of a CTC Lockon.

Two instruction sheets were issued for these lamps under No. 76-10. The first dated 2-60 used DARK GREEN or BLACK ink on PALE GREEN paper, and the second dated 9-65 used BLACK ink on WHITE paper.
