Lionel 6-82026 O #497 Coaling Station/Plug-Expand-Play

Bring your coal dump car into the station and dump its load into a waiting, trackside bin. At the flip of a lever, the bin begins to rise into the air until it reaches the top of the structure. When there, the bin tilts, and the coal load is dumped into storage bin located inside the structure. Move the control lever again, and doors on the bottom of two chutes open allowing the coal to fall into a waiting hopper. With its movement and interactivity, the 497 is a great addition to your coal empire
