THE LOCOMOTIVE: A variation that bears a red and gold keystone decal on the boiler front, numbered 5690 (see condition), and unpainted aluminum smoke stack. I believe this is a "Variation C" produced in 1947.
CONDITION: Overall, this engine is in very nice condition! It has been recently tested in a limited capacity and does run well. However, since it has not been fully tested on a complete track in about two years, I am auctioning & selling it AS IS. Cosmetically, it looks quite good -- it has signs of age, including some slight decoloration in a couple spots and some slightly faded numbering. One of the green jewels adorning the pilot is missing, and the red and gold decal on the front is worn (please see photos).

If you are interested, please bid according to the above information and photos. Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.
I'm currently putting a number of other Lionel trains, tracks, and accessories up for auction as well. If you'd like, Please feel free to check my other Items for Sale to see what's still available, or check back to see what's been added.
Thank you for looking!
UPDATE : Please disregard the above description about the box. I partially confused this box with that of another Lionel item. While it it does have pencil writing on one side, BOTH end flaps are missing -- one completely and one partially. For the purposes presentation, only the broadest sides are potentially presentable. (Again, please see photos for reference). Thank you, and sorry for the confusion!
