LIONEL SET #362 CONSISTING OF A 384, 384T LOCO & TENDER WITH 309, 312 PASSENGER CARS. c. 1931.  A rare and unusual set having mixed trim and mixed lettering where the individual pieces don't appear to belong together or even to have been produced at the same time. 

The engine is black with green stripe and brass and copper trim.  The tender is black with green stripe, nickel journals and brass trim.  The 309 pullman is maroon with cream inserts, wood grain doors, terra cotta roof, nickel journals and rubber stamped "New York Central Lines" above the windows.  The 312 observation is maroon with cream inserts, cream doors, terra cotta roof, copper  journals and rubber stamped "The Lionel Lines" above the windows.  All of which is correct for this set.

The engine has a manual reverse and has been tested, the headlight works, it runs forward and reverse however it should be lubed and serviced for more extended layout operation. 

The set comes with it's individual boxes which are equally as unusual as the set itself.  The boxes for the two passenger cars were manufactured by two different companies and the box for the 309 pullman is actually a box for a 319 all of which is how it should be for this set.  Both passenger car boxes are correctly stamped  Wine / Ivory.  The engine box is stamped "Black / 384" and the tender box is stamped " Black / 384T"  The boxes have all flaps attached and show some wear.

This is a unique set in nice original condition.
