The Animated News Stand No. 128 was produced between 1957 and 1960 and relied on levers and gears to rotate the news boy, move the news attendant to the front counter, and move the dog around the fire hydrant. The operating voltage was critical to proper operation of this accessory. The Lionel Service Manual states that 11 to 13 volts should be used. If too much voltage is applied the drive line will slip its pulley and the news stand will make a chattering sound.
