You are looking at one of the true icons of Lionel Trains--the prewar 226e steam engine. As you know, this is the workhorse beauty of the prewar age that is most like the Berkshires of the postwar era.
This listing is for the locomotive only.
Many collectors say that THIS is the prewar locomotive to own!
You do not find details like these on the postwar locomotives!
It often came with 2600 and 2800 series freight cars. See our other listings for some of these cars.
- Diecast locomotive
- BIG O

CONDTION: One of best running 226s we have had. Cosmetically complete but it does show handling and playwear especially along edges. Has some scratches and rubs. Please look at and enlarge all pictures. Engine runs SMOOTHLY and reverses.
