I bought a nice 3651 log dump car from the Lionel prewar era recently at my local weekend train show.
Now I'm not as knowledged with the prewar era of Lionel as I am with postwar and especially modern era. Mostly the different coupler heights, since that's something we DON'T have an issue with in the later two eras.
Which locomotives and cars were made to pull/accomadate cars like the 3651? I have a repro 263E by MTH and its couplers are too high, so I'm guessing they go with the 2800 series cars, right?
I have seen die cast engines like the 224E and 225E pull cars like the 3651, but what about the 226E?
Again, prewar stuff is sort of alien to me, despite me wanting to get into it deeply. Help in this area is much appreciated.
