What is it?
« on: December 08, 2016, 11:43:27 am »
Hi. Any guesses as to what model and approximate year of manufacture this Lionel is? It was found in a plowed field believe it or not!

Thanks. Rob.

Interesting, I can't quite make out what it is. Did you find out Rob?

I did some digging. I looked and looked at cast steam locomotives and I think I've found a winner - the Lionel 1654 (1946-47) and 1655 (1948-49). They share the same boiler casting. The boiler casting appears to be an exact match. this is an early postwar 4-driver lower-end locomotive that initially predates Lionel's first plastic boiler steamer.

I found the attached photo on the Internet of a 1654 in a similar position to the shell that was found.
