Postwar Lionel Steamers & Tenders
Catalog #ItemGradePhotoPriceDetails
675 Steam Engine
&
2466WX Tender
Loco:
E+

Tender:
E++
Yes $225
SOLD
A 2-6-2 K4 Pacific-type steamer with the correct 2466WX whistling tender:
Photo of the left side of the loco.
The die-cast engine has Baldwin disk drivers plus a die-cast trailing truck and it is the harder-to-find version from 1947 only with a large unpainted aluminum smoke stack.
Photo of the right side of the loco.
Has an operating headlight and smoke.
Photo of the front of the loco.
Has a repro boiler front and that's about it for flaws. The boiler is very clean with strong silver numbering and nice shiny side rods.
Two "aerial" views of the loco.

Photo of the tender.
The early coal-style "LIONEL LINES" tender has a metal-body whistle plus staple-end trucks with a coil coupler.
Photo of the right side of the tender.
Version with railing holes at the drawbar end plus a rectangular air hole in the bulkhead wall.
Photo of the bulkhead wall.
The ORIGINAL shell has silver heat-stamped lettering and rear deck railings.
Photo of the rear deck.
Has the common paint loss on the frame above the drawbar plus the "S" on one side is weak (but readable) and that's about it for flaws. The body is very, very clean with strong lettering overall and the frame is equally as nice with the "2466WX" clearly visible underneath.
An "aerial" view of the tender.

With its prototypical, early-coal-style tender and full complement of driving hardware, it's a great example of one of Lionel's mid-size steamers from the late '40s. The loco lights, smokes and runs great plus the whistle in the tender works! Both units were serviced and they are ready for your display shelf or layout.
2034 Steam Engine
&
6066T Tender
Loco:
E+/OB

Tender:
E+++/OB
Yes $ 90 A 2-4-2 Scout-type steamer from 1952 only: has the correct "LIONEL LINES" 6066T tender.
Photo of the left side of the engine.
The loco has a die-cast boiler with silver numbering plus an operating headlight.
Photo of the right side of the engine.
Some paint chips on the right side of the cab and the right side steam chest. That's about it for flaws on the cab and boiler!
Photo of the front of the engine.
Side rods are a little tarnished but the marker lights & front steps are intact and this unit is very, very clean!
An "aerial" view of the engine.
The 2034 has one of the most detailed cab interiors that Lionel ever made with simulated gauges, piping, levers and firebox.
Photo of the cab interior.

Photo of the engine box.
Grade 7+ original "Middle-Classic" box for the engine (tears; creases; some discoloration; tape inside).
Another view of the engine box.
Has the insert (tears; creases; stains; one small piece missing) and despite the flaws, this box is still solid as it is clean, complete, square and sturdy -- and it is a tough box to find!
Photo of the box insert.

Photo of the left side of the tender.
The 8-wheel "early coal" tender has white heat-stamped bold-faced lettering plus "Scout-type" trucks with single magnetic coupler.
Photo of the right side of the tender.
Version with rectangular hole in the bulkhead wall and with hole in coal pile.
Photo of the rear deck of the tender.
Minimal flaws on the tender -- it is absolutely gorgeous: very, very clean and all intact with spectacular lettering!
An "aerial" view of the tender.

Photo of the tender box.
Grade 8 original box for the tender (tears; creases; tape inside). This box is SOLID: clean, complete, square and sturdy!
Another view of the tender box.

This is only the second 2034/6066T steamer & tender combination we have ever offered for sale and it is the first boxed set we have ever had! We rarely get "low-end" pieces like this as they are usually well played with and only good for parts. The 2034 engine came in starter sets but since it was produced for only one year, it is not that easy to find. These pieces are in nice shape plus the loco is very peppy and it lights and runs well!
2035 ==========
Steam Engine
only
(No Tender)
==========
VG Yes $110
SOLD
A lonesome K4 Pacific 2-6-4 diecast loco (no tender) from 1951 with Magnetraction, smoke and headlight.
Photo of the right side.
Has a black-painted smokestack, sintered-iron spoked drivers and a full complement of driving hardware. The 3-window cab has silver, rubber-stamped numbers.
Photo of the front.
Has some small paints along the catwalk edges plus the cab roof has a very, very slight ding on the right side and the cab roof looks like it may have been repainted at some point in its life; the side rods are little tarnished; has a repro boiler front.
Two "aerial" views.
The loco is very clean overall with very nice numbering and vibrant paint on the boiler.

This engine lights, smokes and runs great -- it is ready for a layout!
Lonesome Tenders Looking for Mates:
234W Pennsylvania
Square Tender
See Notes Yes $ 75
SOLD
A stray coffin-style, whistling tender with a brand new reproduction shell.
Photo of the other side.
Has the correct chassis for a Pennsylvania shell: version from 1966 only with one early-style AAR truck with drawbar and one later-style AAR truck with a fixed coupler.
Photo of the rear deck.
The chassis is very, very clean and rust free. Serviced and the whistle works well!
An "aerial" view.

This is the first 234W Tender from 1966 we have ever had available for separate sale! It is the correct tender for a 2029 steamer from 1966 and it is also the proper-style tender for many other later postwar steamers. This is an opportunity to dress up your steam engine with a tender with a real roadname.
"2046W" Original
Streamlined Tender
Chassis

with a

repro
NYC shell
See Notes Yes $ 75 A stray 8-wheel whistling tender from 1953-54 with a brand new reproduction (and incorrect) "NEW YORK CENTRAL" shell.
Photo of the other side.
This "scoop" tender has bar-end trucks with a magnetic coupler.
Photo of the rear deck.
The chassis is very clean with the original "2046W" numbering clearly visible! Serviced and the whistle and coupler both work!
An "aerial" view.

Here's an opportunity to dress up a postwar steamer with a real roadname (rather than "LIONEL LINES").
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.
