Greetings & best wishes from Mr.Allied and welcome to my auction! Pleas e have confidence in my 100% honest descriptions and please read the following carefully:
This is an Original Lionel Pre-War "O" Gauge No. 156 Twelve Wheel, Electric Locomotive, Circa 1918 or so. The 156 was one of the largest, tinplate, electric type locomotives made by Lionel in the pre-war years. It has twelve wheels, four of which are driving wheels and a hand reverse. I believe this loco to be 100% original paint, lettering & parts and I believe it is complete. The loco measures approx. 10" long over the pilots and is all metal. All of the wheels appear to be in excellent condition. I have not put power to it, so I have no idea if it runs or not, but the drive wheels turn nicely, turning the gears that turn the armature. Over the years, I have seen a few of these, and this is probably the nicest. There are some scratches and wear and a some very minor rust spots on the underside of the frame, but everything is sort of "even" and it shows a nice patina of being almost 100 years old! If you have been waiting to find a nice 156, THIS is the one! PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PHOTOS ARE AN INTEGRAL
