Large Lionel No. 2297WS N&W Freight Set/OBs
Here is a large and wonderful Lionel postwar "Super O" gauge Freight Set cataloged in 1957 - the most expensive and sought after set Lionel sold in the 1950s. This set includes the No. 746 Norfolk & Western Streamline Steam Engine with its matching No. 746W N&W short-stripe whistle tender, the No. 345 Culvert Unloading Accessory with the No. 6362 NYC Culvert Gondola, the No. 264 Operating Forklift Set with the No. 6264 Lumber Car, the No. 3362 Operaitng Milk Car Set with stand, the No. 3356 Operating Horse Car Set and corral, the No. 6517 Illuminated Bay Window Caboose. includes all individual Boxes, the rare LARGE Set Box, Envelopes and some Paperwork. All that is pictured.
Overall the set is in excellent condition. The trains are close to like new, the boxes do show some wear and reinforcements. The engine and tender look beautiful, as you can see in the pictures. Runs and smokes fine. Whistle tender works well. Tender box is missing a flap. The freight cars all look great. I don't see any problems. As stated the boxes overall look good, but do have flaps reinforced with tape. I did show some in the pictures. Comes with the rare and very large set box that measures 25" x 16" x 10". The set box is clean and solid but does have some repair work on one bottom edge. It is complete and intact. I show all the sides of the box in the pictures below. some paperwork is included.
A wonderful set that will be the centerpiece of most collections. Don't miss this one, and please ask any questions. Thanks.
