(Original Lionel #409E Standard Gauge Train Set) Todays saleis for this original Lionel #409E Standard Gauge train set circa 1927-1936. The #408E engine was re-wheeled and rewired when I purchased this set over 10 years ago. The motors are both build a loco motors but appear to be slightly different. The car looks to be all original and complete except for some missing window material. The paint does show a nice aged patina but has the usual nicks, chips & scratches you would expect with a toy this age. This set has sat in a display case (Un-ran) since I bought it over a decade ago. I did apply power to it recently but it is very sluggish and the e-unit is sticking so if you plan to run the set you will need to have it serviced. The lights on the motor where not working and I am not going to mess with them, the new owner will have that pleasure. I tested some of the car lights and they seemed ok but I didn't test all of them. The set is complete with all 4 trailing cars including the hard to find #431 Dinner Car. This is one of the first train sets I ever bought and has been in my collection for years so I am unsure if everything is 100% original or not so please be sure to view all the photos and judge for yourself before offerding. In my opinion this toy has great character appeal and displays very nicely, it would make a great addition to any collection. I don't claim to be an expert on these pieces so if you need more photos or have any questions please ask before offerding. Thank you for viewing my sale, good luck & have a great day.
