The Lionel Pipe Car No. 6409 was a cut-down version of the No. 6408. Listed in the Lionel Service Manual and cataloged under number 6809-25, this car was only available in 1963 as part of Set No. 11311, however, it may have been available in uncataloged sets of the period.
This RED car was not numbered, but "LIONEL" was heat-stamped in WHITE on the sides and it did not have a brake wheel. It came with three GRAY pipes held to the car by a rubber band, and AAR trucks with solid non-operating couplers.
