Reply to "Transformer recommendation for Lionel pre war tinplate 262E loco!"

Properly cleaned and lubricated 262 (any 250 series motor) should exceed your speed control at 12-14 volts. No need for a massive iron core Z or ZW.  A V or R Dial type or just about any of the Letter designated "Multivolt" transformers with do... though a rheostat will help with finer control.
