#6-19234 New York Central “Girl’s Train” boxcar painted blue instead of lilac.
When Lionel remade the famous Girls Train freight set in 1991, the entire run of NYC boxcars came from the painter in the incorrect robins egg blue that was the same color used on the caboose.
A Lionel dilemma. What to do?
Collectors would never accept a remake that used the wrong color. DESTROY THEM...
The Girls Sets #11722 were released with the correct lilac NYC boxcar and the few blue boxcars that survived remained pretty much a secret until Richard Kughn start selling off his Private Collection.
How many actually survived? Guessing would be 50 or less.
NOTE ABOUT PICTURE: TOP CAR IS THE ERROR VERSION. BOTTOM ONE IS THE ACTUAL PRODUCTION ONE (don't included).
