Yes $235 A 4-6-4 Steamer with white, rubber-stamped numbering from 1954: includes the correct 6026W "LIONEL LINES" whistling, (square) tender.

Engine: Magnetraction, operating headlight & smoke.
Photo of the right side of the loco.
Has some scratches on the cow catcher plus some paint chips and paint loss on the steam chests, front steps and back corners of the cab but overall the unit is very clean with nice side rods -- and the steps on the cow catcher are intact! Has an original boiler front.

The loco lights, smokes and runs very well!

The tender has a brand new reproduction "LIONEL LINES" "Coffin" shell with white lettering that is mounted on the correct 8-wheel chassis with metal, bar-end trucks and a magnetic coupler.
Photo of the right side of the tender.
Has a small rust spot on the underside of the frame and that's about it for flaws. The unit is sharp overall -- very, very clean with a nice, rust-free frame.
Photo of the back of the tender.
Works great and it has a sweet sounding whistle!

The distinctive, "coffin" tender, full complement of driving hardware, and the external feedwater heater tank on the front of the boiler make the Santa Fe-type Hudson a sharp engine. Except for the number, the 665 -- designated by Lionel as an O-gauge engine -- is the same engine as a 2065, which was sold with "027" track. The 665 is harder to find than its counterpart. Not in collector-quality condition but if you operate your trains, this is a good deal: both units were serviced and are ready for your layout.

$695 A sharp, large die-cast steamer with the proper, streamlined tender. This 2-8-4 engine from the early '60s has Magnetraction, smoke and an operating headlight plus a four-window cab and white numbering. Includes the correct "PENNSYLVANIA" whistling, (scoop) tender with middle AAR trucks.

Engine: usual tarnishing of the side rods and that's about it for flaws! The loco is very, very clean with crisp numbering, nice vibrant paint and intact marker lights! A powerful loco that looks great plus it lights, smokes and runs great! Comes with the correct original instruction sheet #682-16, dated 3/60 (tears, stains, discolored), bottle of original smoke pellets (over 95% full) and the original (generic) paper that Lionel provided to take up excess space within the master carton.

One of the nicest Berkshire L&T combinations that we have ever had and this is the first 736 Express Container Corp. Master Carton that we have ever had! This package will be a plus to anyone's layout or collection -- especially with the boxes!

The interesting "coffin" tender, unique illuminated marker lights, full complement of driving hardware and the external feedwater heater tank on the front of the boiler make the Santa Fe-type Hudson a sharp engine that is unmatched in appearance by other engines made by Lionel. Except for the number, the 2065 (designated by Lionel as an "027" engine) is the same engine as a 665, which was sold with O-gauge track. This good-looking 2065/6026W Loco & Tender combination has the correct 1956 boxes and these low-mileage units were serviced and they are ready for your layout or display shelf.
Lonesome Tenders Looking for Mates:
6466W Coal Tender E++/OB Yes $125 An early coal-style, "LIONEL LINES" whistling tender with white, heat-stamped lettering from 1950-52. Has staple-end trucks and a magnetic coupler.
Photo of the right side.
Common paint chips above the drawbar plus the shell has some box rub in spots and that's about it for flaws!
Photo of the front of the tender.
A gorgeous tender as the original shell is very clean with crisp lettering plus the frame is rust-free frame and very clean -- and the original "6466W" number on the bottom is almost 100% intact!
Photo of the back of the tender.
The tender was serviced and it has a nice-sounding whistle!
An "aerial" view.

Photo of the box.
Grade 7 original box (tears; creases; tape inside; glue residue; minor stains).
Another view of the box.
Has the insert and this box is solid: clean, complete, square and sturdy!
Photo of the box insert.

A very, very nice tender! The 6466W is the correct tender for 2025, 2026, 2035 and 2036 postwar Lionel engines and it is also the proper-style tender for many other early postwar steamers. If you have one of those steamers in collector-quality condition, it deserves a tender like this one.

The Steam Locomotive (or "Iron Horse") was the invention of an Englishman -- George Stephenson -- in the early 1800's. Americans initially copied his design but soon constructed more appropriate locomotives to negotiate the steep inclines and severe curves of the early American wilderness. This exciting era included the Civil War years and the steam locomotive demonstrated its worth in helping the Union forces defeat the South.

Lionel made various styles of Steam Engines in the Postwar era including the famous Hudson, the popular Berkshire, the sturdy Pennsylvania Turbine, the revered Norfolk & Western 'J' and the odd-looking Dreyfuss. They also offered a variety of 0-4-0 Steam Switchers and models of the Civil War General.

Available tenders included some that whistled, some with prototypical roadnames and some with twelve wheels. Styles included the "coffin" tender, the streamlined tender and the slope-back tender.

Revisit the romantic era of the Iron Horse and put a Steam Engine on your layout.
