More about the set....
The Lionel Western Pacific F-3 No. 2355 would replace the No. 2345 in 1953. This diesel was only available for this year. Lionel never did produce a B Unit to go with this road. The lettering was heat-stamped on this diesel, unlike the reproduction shells that have been silk screened.
These engines have louvered roof vents, portholes with snap-in lenses, side ladders, BLACK heat-stamped small GM and lettering, Western Pacific decal and electronic couplers on the front ends, and solid rear couplers. The powered unit was equipped with Magnetraction, and a three position directional unit whose control lever was adjustable from underneath the chassis. Dual horizontal worm drive motors powered each axle...and they make a neat "growling" sound when operating! The dummy A Unit has a horn that was operated by a D Cell battery. T are no variations.
Lionel had their usual problems with the SILVER paint on these diesels, and today, a substantial premium is paid for units that have bright shinny paint.
