Here is a nice CLEAN Lionel postwar original ZW transformer. THIS one has been serviced here at Lone Star Trains and is ready to play with NOW.
- VARIABLE controls for FOUR different loops of track, or 4 variable circuits
- controls for whistle
- and direction
- and best of all, 275 watts
And how about that awesome style of how the handles move up and down like a real throttle? Just like the Addams Family...
This ZW transformer is the most powerful transformer Lionel made back in the day. This is the iconic transformer you remember from the 1950s and that you saw on the Addams Family. It has remained the style everyone wants and remembers. It has 275 watts of power and has four variable controls, (two of which have the whistle and direction controllers) so you can run trains and lots more with this one power supply. Use one or two of the circuits for accessories!
CONDITION: The unit is in cosmetically really nice shape. The bakelite shell appears clean, and the handles move well. You can see some light scratches in a few places on the shell from some light playwear. The metal baseplate looks clean and original. The cord is in good shape.
The base plate is original though it may have been repainted at some point in its life.
