Lionel O Gauge New York Central 4-6-4 #700E Class J1E Steam Locomotive & 700T 6 wheel die cast tender This engine was originally delivered between 1937 and 1942. This item comes factory painted. It is done in basic black with white lettering. The engine carries number 5344 which is rubber stamped on the side of the cab and the headlight. The tender carries the words, "New York Central". The paint job overall is in excellent condition. It has a few expected chips in the paint only, but I have not yet seen a pair in this good of condition on Ebay in over a year. The lettering on the tender is in very good condition with little to no fading. The engine is powered via a standard Lionel mechanism. It operates very nicely and was just fully cleaned and serviced by an authorized Lionel Repair shop in Hamburg, NY last month. This engine has a die cast boiler and tender. The tender is equipped with 6 wheel die cast metal trucks. This engine was built to NMRA Standards for O-72 T Rail track. Sorry, it will not operate on standard Lionel tubular track. It comes with its original wooden display board. The board has a silver plate on the front with the words, "Lionel Super Detail Locomotive Hudson Type 4-6-4 Class J1E Series 5340. It does NOT come in its original box. This train is consider this to be one of the best examples of Lionel craftsmanship that one has ever seen. It has been operated but is in very good to excellent condition. Please be patient with the photos as they are very large and may take a few moments to load. We have provided large format photos so as to better judge the quality of the product. Please note: some of the photos look lighter than others due to the flash, I tried to take them both ways, but the lighter ones make the train look a bit faded which is NOT the case at all, this is in pristine condition throughout!
