Here is a classic O gauge locomotive.  This is THE one everyone wants, and for a long time, Classic Toy Trains magazine used the postwar Berkshire as a measuring stick in its reviews of newer engines. This is the classic heavy die cast Lionel 1950's 2-8-4 steam engine.

Greenberg tells us that some units in this period did not have the flagstaffs, and it appears this is one of those as there is no evidence of wear where the holes are for the flagstaff.  Also note that the smoke unit has been upgraded to the liquid style so you do not have to find the pellets.

This unit is a 1950-51 version:

  • SILVER numbers stamped under cab windows
  • 3 piece cab window converted to 2 piece
  • Headlight does NOT yet have the bracket
  • No flagstaffs preset on front (a noted variation in Greenberg)
  • die cast trailing truck

In addition, it has all the usual Berkshire features:

  • Magnetraction
  • headlight
  • Smoke (pellet type has been converted to liquid)

This is the heavy die cast steam locomotive only; there is no tender.

CONDITION: C7. Just serviced and doing all it should be doing. Smoke unit has been converted to liquid smoke unit. Some paint rubs here and there. Cab windows have been modified to be two-pane. Overall, clean. No tender.
