On Christmas morning, 1956, one was a very lucky boy indeed if he found the Lionel #1563W Wabash Freight set under the tree. A Pullmor powered F3 diesel pulled an action packed consist including a bright searchlight car, operating barrel car and the famed Evans auto loader. The Postwar Celebration Series reissue of this prized train set is true to the original's colors and paint schemes. Also, the new #1563W Wabash Freight set comes equipped with the trainMaster Command control system, the RailSounds sound system and a programmable searchlight car. Adjust the searchlight's brightness and rate of rotation using a standard remote control track section (sold separately). A matching non-powered F3 A-unit is now available separately.
