This is a Prewar 700E 5344 Lionel Full Scale Hudson from the late 1930's or early 1940's. It is a second casting. The second castings are the best. They have the three oil holes on the bottom of the main drive wheels. We just can't say enough about this engine. It is the Straightest Nicest 700E we have ever seen. There is no warpage or deterioration on either the engine or tender. . The engine has been serviced and so has the tender. This engine runs flawlessly just like a Swiss watch. Looks like it has been test run only. Everything is authentic right down to the drawbar pin and chain and front coupler chain. All four jewels are original and present. The lettering on both sides of the engine is Fantastic as is the tender. Nothing broken or missing. You could search for a long time and not find another one with a casting as nice as this one. All the wheels are original from stem to stern. It's just a fabulous engine in LN condition.
