This is a Lionel 342 Operating Culvert Loader from 1956-58. The motorized culvert loader loads steel culverts from an awaiting line up of culverts on the back of itself. The operating claw goes over and picks up the awaiting culvert and then carries it to above the spotted car (not included) and drops it in. The inclined tray in the car allows the culvert to roll down to the bottom so the next one will also do the same. This is a great reliable postwar accessory. This also works with in conjunction with the 345 motorized culvert loader with a connecting bridge that you can connect between the two of them so that when culverts are unloaded with the culvert loader, they roll down and across the bridge to the culvert loader where they are ready to be loaded back up again. It‘s just loads of fun! It measures 6 inches tall x 12 1/2 inches long x 9 1/2 inches wide.
