Here is an interesting American Flyer WORKING STEAM ENGINE from 1946. While the 312 was smoke in tender was made a few years, this one is the 1946 version with Pennsylvania spelled out on the tender. It usually says American Flyer Lines with the PRR herald instead.
There is a lever for the smoke and choo choo in the tender underneath the tender. The reverse unti lever is in the boiler. Note that the smoke lever in the tender does not have as much play as you are used to with the reverse unit lever (there is just not as much room!). A little push will get turn it on or off.
