Lionel Flag Pole - 6012989 With Blue Flag
More buildings and accessories are springing up on the Mantleburg line. In addition to the American Flyer bridge that I posted about yesterday and the Plasticville Town Hall that we bought at the Christmas Train Show out in Wheaton, we also bought this Lionel Flag pole that features both the American flag and a Lionel flag standing at attention. As you can see on the box, they are showing a red Lionel pennant under the American Flag, but when we opened it up, it was flying a blue Lionel pennant.
Just poking around on the web, it seems that's common? Here's a listing showing the exact setup with red on the box and blue inside.
Seems like the new Mantleburg Town Hall could use a flagpole outside, right? Wonder if we can make up a little "Village of Mantleburg" flag and run it right under the Lionel flag? Of course, we'd follow Roman Mars lead and be good vexillologists and come up with a quality flag with no words on it, right?
