Catalog #ItemGradePhotoPriceDetails
675 Steam Engine
&
2466WX Tender
Loco:
E+

Tender:
E++
Yes $275 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.

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.

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.

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!
2046 Steam Engine
&
2046W Tender
Loco:
E+

Tender:
VG
Yes $195
SOLD
Large 4-6-4 steamer with Magnetraction, operating headlight & smoke and a whistling tender.

Has a nice rust-free chassis and the "2046W" lettering is clearly visible on the frame.
Photo of the rear deck of the tender.
This little-used tender has a nice-sounding whistle.
An "aerial" view of the tender.

With its prototypical, "scoop" tender and full complement of driving hardware, this good-looking 2046 & 2046W set is a great example of one of Lionel's larger steamer and deluxe tender combinations from the postwar era. Both units were serviced and they are ready for your layout or display shelf. Only the second time we have ever had the 1950 version of the 2046/2046W Loco & Tender combination. These two pieces are not that easy to find!
Lonesome Tenders Looking for Mates:
234W Pennsylvania
Square Tender
See Notes Yes $ 75 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").
"2466T" Original
Coal Tender
Chassis

with a

repro
NYC shell
See Notes Yes $ 50 An early coal-style, non-whistling tender from 1946 with a brand new reproduction (and incorrect) "NEW YORK CENTRAL" shell.
Photo of the other side.
Has both deck railings and grab rails plus staple-end trucks with coil coupler.
Photo of the rear deck.
The chassis is very clean but no numbering appears on the frame.
An "aerial" view.

It is the correct tender for some 1666 postwar Lionel engines (depending on year) and it is the proper-style tender for many other early postwar steamers. It's also an opportunity to dress up a postwar steamer with a real roadname (rather than "LIONEL LINES").

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.
