Those are hand held remotes for Lionel Lion Chief or Lion Chief + locos.Lee, in the picture of the Gemini with the rocket on two cars, what are the square tires (with hubcaps) in the lower right?
Yep! I keep all the LC+ remotes in holders alongside of the layout.Those are hand held remotes for Lionel Lion Chief or Lion Chief + locos.
Waaay undersized. And I won't even go into the transport of solid fuel stages nor empty NASA missile and rocket liquid fueled stages transported by rail. Especially with no containers or even covers.Not many, this is a Menards flat with rocket. Way undersized rocket but a nice flatcar.

Well, yes I did. That was my first train around '63. I also lived around a lot of railroad tracks and saw a lot of real trains. One that came through my backyard every day until the mid-70's.I just can't play into the toy O scale rocket fantasy. Sorry.
I guess you never grew up with Lionel Postwar trains in the fifties & early sixties.
No imagination!Never had a rocket car on my train though. Just the normal box cars, gondolas, and tank cars.
