Lionel TT-208 Slide Shoe - The TT-208 slide shoe is a holdover item from Lionel's prewar production. It is used on many of the later prewar trucks and continued to be used throughout the postwar era and into present day. To mount the slide shoe, you will need either a TT-210 or 480-20 rivet and a TC-109 backing plate. While these type of slide shoes should be mounted using a special anvil and crimp tool in a press, some of had success using a punch. We recommend using appropriate tools for the job at hand. We also have complete kits available that provide you with TT-208 slide shoes, TC-109 backing plates and TT-210 rivets. One slide shoe per purchase!
