Just back from a long round trip to the doctor. Scheduled trip to visit the granddaughter coming up in 10 minutes, so, when I get back, I will start by dragging out the FA's, then the box with some of the Lionel cars.
Ain't this fun!

Try to do this in groups. First off, it seems I have placed some in an alternate location, so I will be looking a bit later for them.
This one, A and B unit, 0565 and 0575, single power, but that makes no difference, as they came to me in pieces, along with all the rest.
Interestingly, the A unit has Blombergs, and the B unit has Flexicoils.
The one shot upside down of the rear truck shows the easy fix for broken tabs. Drill the end, very short screw. Did that years and years ago.

5400, single drive, Blombergs. Interesting to note as we go along the differences...like the front apron steps. Later are shots of roof differences.

5600, blue Santa Fe, Blombergs, somebody has painted the fuel tank and trucks silver (I like it better), and patched the coupler hole. No idea why.

5400 and 0565 (I think). Note broken horns to identify roof and loco number from side shot.
Side screens, different, cooling fan different, apron steps different, rood details different, etc., etc.

NYC Geep. Built be Lionel, but Athearn. The only real difference was the handrail stanchion holes are not drilled out. Should I ever decide to run this, it would A) get an Athearn chassis, and B) a full set of Athearn handrails.

New York...

Dual drive, twin HUGE headlamps.

Couple of spare motors.
Now to go stuff them back in their boxes.

The 0565 & 0575 were made in the 1960s when Lionel was still an independent company. The rest of your FAs were made during the Fundimensions period 1974 -1977. Fudimensions was a division of General Mills, who had the maufacturing rights to Lionel at the time.

The 0565 FA has a later chassis under it. So far as I know all pre-Funsimensions HO FAs had that rubber band transmission in them. Some GP7s got a direct gear drive at one end.

The GP7 shell is a poor clone of an Athearn. Side by side numerous differences are apparent, possibly in an attempt to simplify their dies. (Lionel would copy Athearn for years, I happened to notice an O27 SD45 the other day is copied from Athearn right down to the too-wide hood, even though it's O).

Your SCL frame is an AHM era Mehano GP18, the shell would be an SCL Bicentennial unit. Drive will fit any era GP18, or with the truck bottom/sideframe pieces replaced it will go in a later RS11 or RS2. Key on those is the tab that holds the coupler not be broken.

According to the books I have on the history of Lionel their 1957 line was made by Rivarossi and most of the 1958 line was made by Athearn. They items were regular production and were suppose to have a small lionel trademark to distinguish them. Starting in 1959 they made their own products

I remember looking at the differences when I got my Lionel Geep. Yes, to later Athearn numerous differences. However, not many at all to early Athearn (hood mount horn).
I think the consensus was Athearn wouldn't change dies just for a run for Lionel, but Irv would go dig out the old dies.

Biggest difference was the cab. They were both different and the Athearn was removable. The Lionel was a part of the body casting. The other big difference was the dynamic breaks. On the Lionel it was a separate casting comprising of the large fan and the 2 side intake vents. Also Lionel came without handrails. The holes were not even drilled out for them.

Drilled holes for handrails was probably an extra step not performed. I thought for sure the cab came off my Lionel. Have you compared the Lionel shell to the early Athearn shells? Just asking. I think all of my Athearn shells are later style (roof mount horns).

Except that there are no "old dies" for the Athearn GP7/9. They ran that thing all the way through until Horizon took over, if it wasn't already worn out by then. In the mid-late 1970s it cracked and was filleted for a repair where the long hood joins the deck and examples from then into the early 1980s show this repair, which was eventually corrected properly.

The shells differ as follows: Lionel eliminated the separate applied covers for the step areas next to the cab on the long hood end - the hole is there on the shorter side, but I've yet to see one with the cover. Lionel's shell has the cab molded in place and the dimensions are off somewhat. Lionel's shell has molded in letterboards for ease in heat stamping. Lionel's shell the entire dynamic brake piece is separate - Athearn only the side blisters are separate, the fan and hatch are molded in place. And the handrail holes are eliminated on Lionel.


The Lionel GP9 die was also the basis for the 1970s Lionel geep, when the line resumed it began with much of the same old tooling. At that time it was cleaned up and improved somewhat.


There are numerous examples of cloning by manufacturers who wanted to get their own products released but did not have the budget to start from scratch. It was easier to take an existing product and change a few details and how would your competitor prove you copied them when the item is a scale model of a real thing?

- Cox chopnose GP7/9 is otherwise also a clone of Athearn, even the horns.

- Tyco F9 and Penn Line/Life-Like F7 are clones of Athearn/Globe

- Tyco Auto-Loader is a clone of Athearn's piece made for Lionel to the point that an early photo shows one with Athearn autos on it

- Early AHM cars made by OK/Crown are almost perfect clones of Athearn cars

- Pemco's C430, streamline caboose, and some other items are clones of Tyco pieces

- Lionel's U18B is a clone of an Athearn U30B shortened to fit on their existing GP9 chassis

There are plenty of other examples, that's just off the top of my head.

At the Greenberg train show Saturday I got this Lionel car also. It is the Athearn made for Lionel Wabash box car. Now for what I know and have seen, there may be not other Wabash box car sold by Lionel. Does anyone have a picture of a made by Lionel, or a Rivarossi made for Lionel, Wabash box car. I don't have the Greenberg guide for Lionel HO so I don't know. The catalog pictures are drawings and not photos. They show the same paint scheme on a box car with the Lionel car number on it. 0864-250. This number is not on the Athearn made Lionel car. As you can see it is WAB 6287.
* My photo of the car clearly show the Lionel L in a circle.

Actual EMD 50th loco was a GP38 or GP40 IIRC.

Greenberg book just notes the overstamp NP loco exists, and that the known originals have the error on one side only. Apparently worth enough some have been forged.

Greenberg discusses the overstamp loco but it's not mentioned in the guide with values, just in the section on oddballs and forgeries. Real ones are all like that only on one side, but apparently it's worth enough some were faked.

Ah, yes, the giraffe car. I believe they still make something like this in O gauge, not totally sure, though.

** A new to me Lionel Ho car is the Rocket Fuel tank car. Found it at Hamburg train show yesterday. I think I paid fifteen bucks for it. Not the best background for a detailed photo.

Um, does it have a split frame truck that fits over a central pin? if so, that's a Marx, not a Lionel, I have a few Marx Rocket Fuel cars. I've never seen a lionel HO version of this car before, is all.

** Jerry, it is a Lionel Ho car. I just took a photo of its bottom. It does say " The Lionel Corporation, Made in New York, NY, US of America. It's number 0815 places it with the early New York made cars.

That's cool, that's the first Lionel version of that Rocket Fuel car I've ever seen. I didn't even know Lionel had made one. They must be extremely rare then.
