Lionel Trains Helicopter Launching Flat Car No. 3409The Helicopter Launching Car No. 3410 was a manual release only helicopter car. This car is identical to the No. 3409, but was sold in Lionel’s more economically priced sets. Available from 1961 to 1963, this car came with Type B or C helicopter (Type B is illustrated). Scarcer than the No. 3419 remote controlled helicopter, this car came in an ORANGE picture box. The helicopter has been reproduced. There are two variations:

Variation A: Came with early ARR trucks with disc couplers.
spacer
Variation B: Came with early AAR trucks, one with a disc coupler, and one with a solid non-operating coupler.
spacer
Because the trucks can be changed on these cars no value is added between these variations.
