AN INTERESTING EARLY VARIATION
You know the story on the NEW ZWs...a nice item, but in the 5-6 hundred dollar range, and not even available some parts of the year! Why not go for a classic: much less in price, and MUCH EASIER TO GET SERVICED!!
You are looking at a nice CLEAN Lionel postwar original ZW transformer. THIS one has been serviced and tested here at Lone Star Trains and is ready to play with NOW. And for your safety, we put on a new cord for you.
- VARIABLE controls for FOUR different loops of track, or 4 variable circuits
- new cord
- controls for whistle
- and direction
- and best of all, 275 watts
And how about that awesome style of how the handles move up and down like a real throttle? Just like the Addams Family...
This ZW transformer is the most powerful transformer Lionel made back in the day. It has remained the style everyone wants and remembers. It has 275 watts of power and has four variable controls, (two of which have the whistle and direction controllers) so you can run trains and lots more with this one power supply. Use one or two of the circuits for accessories!
The bakelite shell appears to have more of a matte finish to it. The logoplate is different than most I have seen--painted? brass? The handles move well. You can see some light scratches in a few places on the shell, and you might consider polishing it if that sort of thing is important.
We have provided you pictures of every angle.
Includes a COPY of the original instructions.
CONDITION: Serviced and works great. New cord. Interesting logo plate on top. I cannot tell if it is original brass or if it has been painted (very well). The overall patina of the bakelite is a duller, more flat-looking texture. You can see some scratches here and there.Bottom metal plate shows some oxidation and wear.
