LIONEL 260E, 260T 710, 710, 712 TWO TONE BLUE PASSENGER SET #241E

Copyright 1999-2017 Classic Collectables

LIONEL SET #241E.  260E, 260T, 710, 710, 712 TWO TONE BLUE PASSENGER SET.  Original. c. 1933.  This was Lionel's top of the line O gauge passenger set for the five years it was cataloged.  The engine is black with green frame, pendulum reverse unit, headlight and firebox light.  The black 260T tender has a green frame with six wheel trucks followed by two tone blue passenger cars with six wheel trucks. 

The engine has been tested and runs forward and reverse.  However, keep in mind that this engine has Lionel's pendulum reverse unit which, as we know, can be temperamental.  The reverse unit can be turned on or turned off via a switch in the cab.  This can be helpful in providing reliable operation if you are one who run your trains. 

The 710 series cars changed to blue from red in 1933. Given the engine still has Lionel's pendulum reverse unit this set would date to this time period.  A nice set with play wear consistent with it's C-6 grading and quite suitable for display or operation.  The photos convey the overall ambiance of the set. 

GRADES C-6                                             PRICE: SOLD
