Very Good Vintage Lionel 385e 2-4-2 Standard Gauge Steamer For Sale

Very Good Vintage Lionel 385e 2-4-2 Standard Gauge Steamer

Liquidating an estate. Offered is a vintage Lionel standard gauge tinplate 385E 2-4-2 steam locomotive and tender from the 1930s in olive green Lionel Lines livery. These were taken from under an inactive layout, and we do not know how long they were in storage. Cosmetically, these items are excellent - my guess is that they were previously restored, since the painted areas show less play wear than the brass trim parts. The wheels appear to be replacements, as do the electrical pickups, the headlight trim ring, the tender couplers and perhaps the tender trucks (one tender truck has an electrical pickup, connected to nothing, since the tender is empty inside). It appears to me that all trim is complete and in good condition - you should confirm this from the photos. One cosmetic flaw apparent is that the tender coal load, originally a matte black, has been touched up in spots with gloss black paint. So, that piece of tin needs to be re-sprayed. I have only a short section of standard gauge track for testing, and wish this item ran better than it does. At first it did not move - some repeated nudging got it going. It takes a lot of power to start moving, and sometimes at slow speed stops dead. When moving, it did not seem to be a strong runner, and it appears that a wheel or axle may be bent, since the loco has a slight front to back wobble going down the track. The reversing unit sticks, and only works occasionally. The head light and the red light under the firebox both illuminate. No box or manual.
Offered with a low starting price and . Seller will ship this heavy item anywhere in the 48 contiguous states via USPS Parcel Post Select with tracking for 29.95. Shipment outside the contiguous 48 states may be higher. No international shipping. PayPal accepted. If Buyer elects not to purchase shipping insurance, Seller shall have no liability for shipping loss or damage. Since I must create a custom shipping box, shipping cannot be combined with other items.
Seller is not an expert in model trains or collectibles. Please examine photos closely, and e-mail questions prior to offerding.Thank you for visiting my sale.
