The 2012 LIRR Mint Car
“The Route of the Dashing Commuter” was a reference to people that had to run to catch their Long Island Rail Road commuter train into New York City. The fellow depicted in the logo was nicknamed “Dan”. METCA has incorporated this logo and slogan, along with design references to one of LIRR’s previous owners, the Pennsylvania Railroad, into our 2012 Division Car. This Limited Production 6-52596 METCA Long Island Rail Road Mint Car is 100% Lionel made and decorated, features die-cast sprung trucks/couplers, a metal brake wheel, a metal frame, and includes a gold bullion bar load. This car is the perfect companion to METCA’s ongoing railroad themed Heritage Mint Car Series.
