Lionel Trains Passenger Station No. 132 Passenger Station Interior showing train control

Lionel Passenger Station No. 132The Passenger Station No. 132 was available beginning in 1949 and would continue to be catalogued until 1955. It would replace the No. 115 Lionel City Station in 1950. This station was illuminated by an No. L431 Lamp. Like the No. 115 before it, this station featured automatic train control that would stop a train at any insulated track section(s) that were usually located near the station. The control, that is illustrated above in the interior view, was accessed by removing the roof, and was thermostatically controled. To use this feature the locomotive’s directional unit must be set in the "forward only" position.
Electrical power was connected with three binding clips on the bottom of the station. All No. 132 Passenger Stations have a RED painted chimney on the roof. However, it is sometimes found with a GREEN painted chimney that was used on the roofs of the later issued No. 133 Passenger Station. These roofs are interchangeable, however, the No. 133 Passenger Station does not have the train control feature.

No. 132 Passenger Station Box

In 1949 and 1950 the No. 132 shared the same instruction sheet with the No. 115 that is numbered 115-2 and dated 3-49 and 3-50. Beyond this, the No. 132 had its own sheet dated 1-51 and 3-54 No. 132-55. They also shared the same parts envelope.
Of particular note is that during the period 1946 to 1948, the instruction sheet that came with the No. 115 Lionel City Station (No. 115-2) dated 3-46, was also intended to be used for the No. 132 and the No. 137 stations. This was three years before the actual introduction of the No. 132, and the No. 137 lithographed station was never produced during the post war period.
