You are looking at a neat diecast 2-6-2 steam engine that Lionel made prewar and then in 1945 and 1946 when they re-opened after the war. In fact, in 1945, this engine headed Lionel's first train set back in business.
This is a die cast engine with the more common style drawbar, so you can conect to most any tender you want. This means you can run it with your prewar OR your postwar trains--just hook up whichever tender you like. This listing is for the locomotive only--there is no tender with this item.
This would be awesome for your train room or man cave!
CONDITION: C-6. Tested and reverses and runs. Has rubs and chips in black paint. Siderods a little tarnished. The handrails may be reproductions, and some of the handrail cotter pins are post-factory. Complete. Looks nice overall. Loco only.
