The Lionel Scenery Set No. 974 was available in 1962 and 1963. Lionel would furnish the boxes for this set to Life-Like who would then add the contents.
Because of the four foot length of this box that makes it unwieldy, these boxes were only rarely saved by Lionel’s customers. There was no need for the purchaser to keep the box after the contents were used on a layout.
This is why the value of this accessory is tied up mainly in the box that is difficult to find today. This set consisted of the following items:
A four foot by eight foot Grass Mat.
