2007 Tinplate Volume 1 Catalog (cw)

249 O Gauge Loco & Tender w/Proto-Sound 2.0 - Two-Tone Blue
Product Details

The Lionel catalog for 1936 introduced the new 249 as a "high speed powerful conventional locomotive with chrome plated trimmings and a wealth of embossed details." While smaller and less expensive than the 260E and its successor the 263, the 249 shared the same motor as its larger brethren. Cataloged until 1939, the 249 was part of the last hurrah of tinplate. When the 249 disappeared from the line, the production of high-quality, sheet-metal trains had passed into history.
Relive the colorful final days of tinplate - with the added excitement of Proto-Sound 2.0 sounds, smoke, and speed control - with a 249 locomotive and a set of 600 Series passenger cars or 2800 Series freight cars.
