This is a super cool Vintage Miniature Train House, Lionel No.45 Automatic Gateman Railroad Crossing. I believe this is "0" scale, (but please check the dimensions if you are in need of an exact scale). This piece is so cool, not tested so not sure if it is working (sold "As Is"). I love these little All Metal Houses for all kinds of decor, from the kids room shelf to a Christmas Village for the Holidays.
At the time of listing I have a small collection of Tin Train Buildings. Each is sold Separately, but if you are interested in more than one, Please contact me for availability.
The Gateman is a composite material, arms are NOT attached, they could be glued, but that will leave them in a permanent position, so I will leave that up to you. Overall this piece is in excellent vintage condition, with a light but rich, naturally aged patina. Could be missing some small components (finial tip on sign and perhaps something from the chimney).
***Definitely some light wear and chipping to the metal door, all just adding to the vintage charm. Please Zoom the photos to appreciate all the details, as well as to best understand overall condition, as well as to be sure it is NOT missing any small component you might expect it to have. Please ask questions if needed. Please ask questions if needed.
Piece measures: Base measures 5.75" x 7" x .5" , House alone is 4" x 3" x 4" tall along the roof line.
