LIONEL #807 Caboose four-wheel - Pre-War 0 Gauge

_ ( Sorry SOLD ) The Lionel 800 Series cars boast very nice detailing, as well as bright colors and brass accents. According to our Greenberg's book, this series was first introduced in 1915, and was manufactured until about 1942. The cars in this series were built primarily on either a 6-1/2" or an 8-7/8" frame, although there were a few with a 5-1/2" frame. The have deeply embossed sides and bright colors, similar to their counterparts in the larger, standard gauge size. We are currently offering several cars in the 800 series for sale.

This car is the Lionel #807 Caboose. It is one of the Four-Wheel Freight Cars that Lionel produced during this period. It has red sides with peacock roof and windows, and a black frame. It has brass plates and end railings, nickel journals, and couplers on both ends. The plates read "Lionel Lines" and "No. 807". They are present on both sides of the car. The Lionel #807 measures 6-1/2" long by 2" wide by 3-1/2" high. It was manufactured between 1927 and 1940.

Looking at the underside, there is an oiling instruction sticker present. There is some rust present on the trucks. Unfortunately, as the pictures show, this caboose, and most of the 800 series cars we currently have listed have definitely seen many hours of use. This car has a considerable amount of scratches, missing paint etc. Although intact, it could certainly use some gentle restoration, unless you are seeking that well-used vintage look.

Considering the estimated 70+ years age of this car, I am not surprised at the amount of wear. These trains were designed for children to play with, so the fact that they survived at all is a testimony to the Lionel quality.

Please note: We have not tested any of the model trains on the website, as I unfortunately lack the knowledge to test them without damaging them, and I do not have the necessary track or transformers. I can say that the trains currently on this site came from a single collection in my family, and the owner would have likely maintained them. However, I must state that they are sold "as is". I try very hard to accurately describe the items on this site. However, if you have any questions, please email us by using the Contact tab on our Home page. I will be happy to provide additional pictures and answer any questions you may have.
