HARDER TO FIND COPPER PIPING VERSION on the Dark Gunmetal Gray!


You are looking at a PART for your classic steam engine from 1933-1939. This metal boiler shell for a steam engine fits the 385E and the 1835E. It is possible it fits others, but these are the ones I know it fits. These engines are 2-4-2 STANDARD GAUGE engines.

THIS one is an interesting variation of the 385E: Dark gunmetal gray (versus gray) AND copper piping (versus nickel).

This one has scratches and rust and some paint wear and chips. However, I do believe it is original.

THIS unit is an original Lionel shell from the 1930s. NOTE THAT YOU ARE GETTING MORE THAN A MERE SHELL: Check out some of the EXTRAS still on it--piping,whistle, bell, Lionel plaque on cab sides, nickel handrail, stanchions...THESE PARTS ADD UP!!

We have a other standard gauge items and parts in our other listings right now, and more coming over the next few weeks. Buy more and save on combined shipping WHEN POSSIBLE.

CONDITION: This one looks original. There are some scratches and paint rubs here and there, all pictured. Has COPPER piping and trim, the more desirable version of this engine. Be sure to enlarge the pictures to see every detail. Pictures show all sides.
