LIONEL "CHINA BLUE" SET

Copyright 1999-2017 Classic Collectables

LIONEL 265E, 265T, 619, 617, 618 STREAMLINE PASSENGER SET.  Original.  circa1936-37.  One of the rarest Lionel sets from the 1930's.  Called "China Blue" by collectors but not so named by Lionel.  The set never appeared in the Lionel catalogs.  It was a promotional set offered by Lionel to possibly only one or a few Lionel dealers. 

The engine had been bench tested and runs smoothly forward and reverse.  The cab is original however the number boards have been replaced.  As a promotional set it did not come with a whistle.  Very nice original cars in better condition than usually found when one of these scarce sets does happen to surface.
