  • Here's an original Lackawanna Set containing the grey top loco
  • Perhaps we are being too fussy in grading the set as excellent, because we had to magnify the picture 3 times to show the 2 marks on the one end of ot the loco
  • Classic Toy Trains new book "Lionel Trains of the 1950's" states the following: "The 2321 Lackawanna Train Master deserves to be praised as one of the landmark O gauge locomotives of the Post-War era. Let's call this twelve wheel model a masterpiece of engineering - an Olympian god with the elegance of a debutante"! (end of quote)
  • This supports our statement that the Lackawanna FM loco is arguably the best running and most powerful Lionel loco of all time (along with the Virginian and Jersey Central models)
  • Our bias stems not only from operating the Lionel models but also from watching and riding them on the real Lackawanna, which was the first railroad to get the Trainmaster (it was the most powerful loco on the rails when introducd in 1953)
  • Don Shaw (The Train Station founder) rode behind one on the second night it was in service on the 5:30 Lakeland Express! One or two commuters clocked the train at over 90 mph on the Wayne flats, hauling twelve heavyweight passenger cars! To the cheers of everyone in the full car, it arrived at Boonton, it's first stop (one stop before Mountain Lakes) 10 minutes ahead of a 44 minute scheduled run from Hoboken (they had not activated the speed governor), and they had to wait 10 minutes until the scheduled departure time so as to not leave any customers behind!
  • Designed for both passenger and freight service, Lionel rushed this new model out in 1954, introduced in this and one other set
  • There is just nothing matching the performance of this loco and set
  • Cars are Like New and the caboose with one mark as shown
  • Please note the original set can contain either a grey top or a rarer maroon top Lackawanna
  • Set box is complete, 2321 loco box complete, 6462-25 green gondola, and 6456-25 grey hopper boxes are complete, the 6464-50 M&St.L box car box and 64217-1 caboose box are each missing flaps on one end, and the 6415 tank car box is complete except for one inside spacer flap
  • Set includes 8 curved and 3 straight 0 gauge track, a UCS uncoupling track and a lockon as cataloged
  • Original set did NOT include a transformer
  • Pleae note loco will NOT operate on O-27 curves)
  • We love the Lackawanna and will hate to part with this set, but we have one in our collection and are happy to share one with our customers! DNS.
