RARE LIONEL "BABY RAIL CHIEF" SET
STREAMLINE PASSENGER SET

Copyright 1999-2020 Classic Collectables

LIONEL 259E, 1689W, 1703, 1701, 1702 BABY RAIL CHIEF PASSENGER SET.   Original paint.  A rare set.  The set is headed by a pressed steel 259E, 1689W tender in black with center roller pickup and whistle . The cars are red / maroon streamline Lionel Jr. passenger cars with the rare head end 1703 coach with coupler to attach the cars to the tender. This set is rarely found in this color or this nice, original condition. 

Reportedly a Macy Department Store Special. The TCA Quarterly, July 1972, published a copy of a Macy ad from the 11-27-36 edition of the New York Times showing this set, among others.

The engine has been bench tested. It runs smoothly, reverses as it should and the headlight works. The whistle is getting power but does not work.

 

SET GRADES C-6                                   PRICE: $1800.00
