That Time Johnny Cash Did A TV Commercial For Lionel Trains In The 1970s

One of the highly desirable memorabilia from Johnny Cash is the “Ridin’ The Rails” toy train box car (Model number 6-9780) produced by Lionel Trains in 1976 to commemorate the TV special starring Johnny Cash. A limited number of these 11″ long cars were produced and the car was fully functional and could be used with any Lionel electric train set of the same scale. It was selling for $225 at the Johnny Cash General Store, but don’t want one that badly – it was sold out years ago. Instead, sit back for 30 seconds and watch The Man In Black pay tribute to the train company in this TV ad from the 1970s.
