Here is one fabulous clock that will bring smiles to any model railroader -- a large one sold by the Lionel Company but ONLY to its dealers ! At approximately 17 inches tall and 12 inches wide, standing out from the wall about 6 inches, these clocks were made to be showpieces on model railroad store showroom walls, and apparently were not offered to the public.
This clock needs nothing -- simply hang it up and enjoy it ! It lights up beautifully (see our second picture) for full effect showing off its powerful steam locomotive graphic, or it will run without the back-light. It kept perfect time at our house, and it is very quiet.
A label on the back states: PATENT PENDING (c) American Sign And Advertising Services Inc. 1976. This company made a number of clocks for commercial companies.
USE: This is an electric clock with three hands: one for the hour, one for the minute that are black, and a red second hand. It has a supple, serviceable cord to plug it into a standard wall outlet. There is a black in-line switch used to turn the inside light on and off. To change the hands and set the time, the clear front panel pops off (or, easier than taking it down from the wall, we just waited until the time was what the hands said, then simply plugged it in!)
CONDITION: Amazing! Beautifully clean and bright with sharp, crisp graphics. We could find nothing wrong with it, except for one very light scratch down the clear face that is hard to see unless you are in the "right spot" and then look for it. There are NO cracks, chips, broken or loose parts, and nothing is missing. Someone took wonderful care of it. It is made of plastic or plexiglas. The bright red LIONEL is strong as ever, and the clear face has not clouded or discolored. Some of the white panels have become just VERY slightly changed from bright white to an off-white, but are not yellow.
