Part of Lionel's 1957 - 1966 era HO Scale product line, unlike the Athearn Hustlers which were all released with "Hi-Fi" rubber band drive mechanisms, the later production Lionel models were gear driven. Although Athearn produced four different variations of their Hustler chassis, the gears and the black bottom plate were only seen on Lionel releases. Printed in white, the black plastic plates bore the following text: "Husky Switcher The Lionel Corporation New York Made In U.S. of America". As was the case with the early Lionel HO-Scale models that were manufactured by Rivarossi, early Athearn produced Lionel releases bore circular "L" logos on their bodies. Unlike the Athearn releases which were factory decorated and bore large numbers under their cab windows, Lionel models were delivered in governmental and railroad liveries. The Lionel models were shipped in Minneapolis and St. Louis 0561 (rotary snow plow with operating blade and white cab sides), Navy Yard New York 0570, Rio Grande (with an orange snow plow) 0560, U.S. Air Force Minuteman 0053, Minneapolis and St. Louis 0055 (with red cab sides), AEC (Atomic Energy Commission) 0056, Union Pacific 0057, and Rock Island 0058 liveries.
