.Quality work is NEVER an accident, but the result of high intentions and a sincere effort. ZW's will operate most any train made today w/"add-ons"! Having serviced Lionel transformers for almost 30 years for some of the finest Chicago area hobby shops, you are assured of receiving a fully functional transformer! Selling and repairing transformers is my specialty!

This ZW was built in the mid-fifties when Lionel built quality trains! Lionel hasn't built a quality transformer since 1966! This extremely clean ZW has a very low "humm" because of the time taken to remove all coil laminations and re-install them properly, this increases the coil efficiency and increases the voltage output and will operate cooler w/less current draw! This ZW will be operating trains for another 50 years, long after these new electronic transformers are "trashed"! (Lionel's NEW ZW is already on their 2nd generation and costs 800.00). Both upper and lower cases are FREE of any cracks but will have a minor scratch or 2 and shows minor wear! A NEW power cord was installed for safety and was routed as Lionel routed the leads to the coil to keep wires away from the moving contact arms as Lionel did, whether needed or not, 4 NEW carbon rollers were installed and were aligned to a clean secondary coil maintaining a "air gap" between the moving contact

The "repro" box shown is complete w/all 4 inserts and made of the same heavy cardboard Lionel used and is hard to tell from original, which most sellers won't supply! The instruction sheet is a COPY of a original! (The box is also available for seperate sale). This box not only helps in getting your ZW to you undamaged but will keep your ZW "out of harms way" and clean when not in use! I ALWAYS double box transformers when shipping! All my transformer are tested for performance after re-conditioning and again before shipping in case I missed something!
