This is a very nice Lionel 250 serviced Great condition. I had this shell and frame probably restored by me awhile ago. Overhaul the motor, wheels, good wire. Lionel made the 250 pre 252 with no reversing switch. Look at the top, no slot for the reversing switch handle.
Lionel later added the switch and cut a slot in top for lever and called it 252. See the VIDEO of it running. I list them for what I have in them, cost plus materials.
Runs great is both directions. Service and Has been serviced, Tested and runs. Tested it running in forward. Antique Prewar Tin Plate Engine. Made in the early 1920'S.
SEE VIDEO OF IT RUNNING. Thank you for looking You will get the engine you see! If more I will pay. Going to the West coast always cost more.
