Weather Stations from Lionel (1962)

As part of its diversification into other toy lines Lionel began to offer additional products with a science focus in the 1960. This included plastics engineering kits and weather stations. Lionel Weather Stations came equipped with various thermometers, barometers, charts, and other gadgets that allowed budding meteorologists to measure and predict the weather.

The weather stations were portable, entirely self-contained within a sturdy plastic case, and typically operated on a single D battery.
