This is a Lionel 1688E Prewar Steam Engine that could either be rehabilitated or used for parts to repair a similar engine. The paint on the engine is in reasonably good condition considering the age. The unit is missing the following items; the left red marker light, both the pilot and trailing trucks and the sliding pickup shoes. The motor is dirty but it has been bench tested and it will run. The E-unit, however, does stick and will either need some work or need replacing in order to free it up for smooth operation.PLEASE LOOK OVER THE PHOTOGRAPHS FOR CONDITION OF THE ITEM.
