The Lionel Prairie Type 2-6-2-Locomotive No. 224 would be available in 1945 and 1946. This locomotive was also issued under the numbers 224 and 224E during the pre-war period and this pre-war version would head up the first post-war set No. 363W that was only available in 1945 (Variation A).spacer
This engine was equipped with Baldwin nickel-rimmed driving wheels, drive and connecting rods with an eccentric crank die cast front and rear trucks, handrails, and a detailed cab. There are three variations:
Variation A: Has blackened metal handrails and the engine has a squared off cab at the rear (pre-war). The No. 2466W tender is fastened to the locomotive by a long blackened or chrome drawbar that fits around a pin located under the cab. The tender has blackened hand rails on the deck and "LIONEL LINES" lettering is colored "WHITE" instead of the more common SILVER that is found on early post-war tenders. The tender has pre-war trucks that have "swirled" or "dished" inside wheels, and brass center rail roller pickups. (Late 1945) spacer
Variation B: This variation has a shortened drawbar that connects to the tender. It has the rounded cab floor; chrome hand rails and came with a No. 2466W tender that has chrome rails on the rear deck. The tender trucks were Type 1e or Type 2 trucks that have "swirled" or "dished" inside wheels, brass center rail roller pickups, and an open coil coupler. (1946) spacer
Variation C: Same as Variation B, except came with a Type 3 trucks on the tender, regular wheels, regular center rail pickups, and a closed coil coupler. (1946)
This item was my fathers and it is a shame but this was the only piece left out of the whole set, and one of the last items left of my dad's, but like all items listed on craigslist contact me as all things are negotiable so you could have this item for less than you think, also I need you to move ASAP as I do not want to take this with me when I move (and it is tough to bring everything in RV) so ask fast please.
P.S. I need to let all buyers know there is some slight damage to this engine, one of the wheel links has one end off, and the rear truck has some slight damage, other than that all is great, the pictures do not show this well that is why i has posted it here.
