Here's a photo of an original 1680 boiler with complete fittings.
It was in the train set with four streamlined cars painted green. The tender, which I've already sold was the one in this photo.
This was an accidental acquisition with some prewar Lionel that I bought. The engine was such a mess that I'm selling it as parts. The motor looked good but the reverse mechanism was destroyed. NWL, does yours reverse ?
With much difficulty, I got the motor running forward only. I couldn't find the wire to the field. Finally found out from a friend that one side of the field is wired directly to the pickup. So I need to find a buyer for a forward only motor. here it is - runs nicely.
