Air Whistle version.
Pre- LionChief version.
Note that these modern air whistle tenders work best with modern transformers.
You are looking at a Lionel instant classic! Here is the original Lionel Polar Express steam engine and tender that runs straight off of your transformer power like most Lionel trains.
This is the PE that came in the Polar Express sets before the Bluetooth or LioneChief...a great exact replacement for your traditions.
It has all of the functions:
- air whistle in the tender
- Die cast locomotive body
CONDITION: C-7. Looks to have been used, but not much. Tested all functions, and everything works. Even HAS the little cosmetic whistle on the roof. Rollers show very little track time. There is a paint chip along one running board on one side--it is small, but it is there. This is the original version of the engine; it is NOT the Bluetooth version. The box is here, but it is in rough shape with tape, shipping labels, a sticker, and a missing inner flap.
