You are looking at a vintage Lionel transformer from around 100 years ago!! It has been tested for voltage on all contacts, and it is performing as it should.
Lionel produced this transformer in various versions from 1916-1938. I believe this one is from 1921-1938 as it fits the "latest" variation as reported:
- It has the NICKEL plate (vs. Brass)
- On the SIDE (vs. on the Top)
- The plate is nickle
- It is 150 watts (vs. 200)
- It is 25 volts
These earlier transformers are great because there are SO many voltage combinations possible, all the way up to 25 volts, which you need to push your Standard Gauge and many larger O gauge. For contrast, many postwar transformers top out at 15-18 volts.
CONDITION: C-6 Very good. Tested and works on all contacts. Faceplate shows some scratches and general wear. Cord is in good shape. With a COPY of the original instructions. Pictures show it all!
