THIS IS A VERY NICE LIONEL RARE (ONE YEAR MFG. ONLY) 1955 VERSION POST-WAR #234O TUSCAN RED FIVE GOLD STRIPE PENNSYLVANIA GG1 ELECTRIC ENGINE THAT IS IN VERY GOOD TO EXCELLENT CONDITION. IF YOU LOOK AT THE PHOTOS THAT I HAVE PROVIDED, YOU WILL SEE THAT WHILE THE RUBBER STAMPED FIVE STRIPES ARE NOT COMPLETE ON EACH SIDE, THEY ARE FAINTLY VISIBLE IN THE END SECTIONS. THE TUSCAN RED PAINT OF THE SHELL IS IN EXCELLENT OR BETTER CONDITION. THE BOTTOM UNIT IS ALSO IN EXCELLENT CONDITON AND ONLY SHOWS SIGNS OF MINIMAL USE. THIS MAY BE THE 2340 THAT YOU HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR. IT RUNS GREAT AND LOOKS GREAT. AS YOU ARE AWARE, THE 2340 LIONEL'S POSTWAR PRR GG1 ELECTRIC ENGINE, LIKE THE 2330 IN 1950, WAS ONLY MADE FOR ONE YEAR AND IT IS QUITE HARD TO FIND, ESPECIALLY IN THE TUSCAN RED PAINT SCHEME. SO IS A WONDERFUL CHANCE TO BUY ONE OF THE HARDEST TO FIND LIONEL POSTWAR ENGINES, IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.
THE 2340 GG1 WAS THE FIRST GG1 TO BE OFFERED ON BOTH THE BRUNSWICK GREEN AND THE TUSCAN RED PAINT SCHEMES, SO THIS ENGINE IS BASICALLY THE FIRST TUSCAN PAINT SCHEME PENNSYLVANIA RR GG1 OFFERED BY LIONEL. IT CONTAINS MAGNE-TRACTION AND TWO POWERFUL MOTORS. MANY CONSIDER IT TO BE THE MOST POWERFUL PULLER OF THE POSTWAR LIONEL ENGINES. ITS TWO MOTORS, MAGNE-TRACTION AND HEAVY DIE-CAST SHELL, GIVE TREMENDOUS PULLING POWER.
THIS BEAUTIFUL ELECTRIC ENGINE IS IN EXCELLENT COSMETIC CONDITION AND IN EXCELLENT OPERATING CONDITION. T IS NO BATTERY DAMAGE AND ALL OF THE PRR KEYSTONES ARE COMPLETE
WHILE IT MAY HAVE SOME SLIGHT MARKS FROM USE, IT STLL CAN BE DESCRIBED AS BEING IN EXCELLENT COSMETIC CONDITION. THE BOTTOM UNIT IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION AND IS ALSO BASICALLY CORROSION FREE.
THIS UNIT APPEARS TO HAVE OBVIOUSLY BEEN OWNED BY A CARING ADULT SINCE NEW.
IT WILL MAKE AN EXCELLENT ENGINE TO OPERATE ON YOUR LAYOUT, OR PERHAPS TO ADD TO YOUR COLLECTION IF YOU DO NOT ALREADY HAVE ONE. THEY ARE HARD TO FIND. I HAVE TAKEN PHOTOS OF THE ENGINE AND PAID FOR THE ENLARGEMENT OPTION SO THAT YOU CAN LOOK AT IT CLOSELY. PRICING OF THIS ITEM HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED THROUGH THE USE OF THE DAVID BOYLE BOOK STANDARD CATALOG OF LIONEL TRAINS, 2ND EDITION.
