Lehigh Valley No. 6476 Type V Variation A

Lionel 6456 Series Hopper CarsThe Lehigh Valley Hopper Car No. 6476 is listed in the Production Table as Variation A of the Type V RED plastic body that has CREAM or WHITE lettering. This car was available in 1957 and shows the number "25000" on the sides of the car.
This was the first issue of the 6476 Hopper Cars and it came with bar-end trucks that are equipped with magnetic couplers. It is the only exception to this numbered series to have such trucks. Almost all of the 6476 cars are distinguished by the fact that they have operating couplers at both ends of the car, that came with AAR trucks and disc couplers. This car did not have a brake wheel and came in a late classic box that was labeled "No. 6476 / HOPPER CAR" in bold letters.
