Lionel Trains Cannon Firing Range Set No. 347The Cannon Firing Range Set No. 347 was available only in three Sears promotional sets: No.19326 (Sears Set No. 9820) in 1964, No. 19326 and No. 19434 in 1965. In at least the Sears No. 9820 set this launcher was accompanied by a vehicle manufactured by Payton Plastics and ten soft plastic soldiers that were made by Multiple Products Corporation. These soldiers can be identified by a circle logo on their bases.

This accessory used the superstructure from the Missile Firing Car No. 6544, but substituted four cannons for the missile launching rack. Each cannon had a lever that cocked manually and they would fire in sequence when the RED serrated knob was turned.
Came with four wooden projectiles and an instruction sheet No. 347-10 dated 8/64. The wooden projectiles measured .175" in diameter by 1.9" long. The USMC Cannon Car No. 6651, Minuteman Cannon Car No. 3666, and the No. 347 all used different size shells that look identical, but they are not interchangeable. There are no variations.
Dimensions: 8 inches long, 4-1/2 inches wide, and 2-1/2 inches high.
