Short answer, yes.

David Doyle’s “Standard Catalog of Lionel Trains, 1900-1942”, reproduces a Lionel catalog page from 1917.

It lists the following outfits with a #38 electric locomotive:

“No. 38  ...outfit includes 8 sections of curved track, making a circle 3-1/2 ft. In diameter.  Has electric headlight. Reversing controller and connection for lighting interior of cars. Price $12.00”
