This shell was really bad, did the best I could on it. Very nice Lionel Early 248 Nice Prewar/Antique Vintage Lionel restored Black, Tin Plate engine Rare type, The 248 only runs in forward. That is how Lionel made it. Try to use original parts if I have them.It was really dirty when I got it. Good wire, Serviced it and it runs great. Made 1927-32 antique/Vintage toy train. With all the trim parts, I tested it. It runs great in only one directions. This type engine only runs in forward only. Look at the pictures and ask questions.
Wheels are all new, New wires. Very nice antique Lionel for you layout or shelf. Sell for what I have in them. They all runSEE LAST TWO PICTURES OF IT RUNNING. If you want one cheaper you may have to restore or repair it your self.
Lots of work involved believe me. If they say not tested that probably means it may not run and you got a project. See pictures for this is the best description.
