LIONEL #211 TEXAS SPECIAL ALCO AA UNITS

Offered for sale is a very attractive set of Postwar Lionel #211 Texas Special Alco AA Units which was produced from 1962 to 1963 and again from 1965 to 1966. They are given a rarity rating of "3" in the TM Rarity Guide, which means that they were regular production items that are gaining in collector popularity and are getting harder to find. These sharp-looking engines are in Very Good condition, and they are extremely clean with bright colors, crisp markings, and with some scratches, nicks and paint loss, but with no dents and no warpage. These 46 year old Alco engines are very nice for their age, and they proudly wear Lionel's version of the unique red and white paint scheme that the MKT Railroad created for its Texas Special Train. The powered A unit was produced with a traction tire and has a ballast weight installed in the cab to improve traction.  And, the powered A unit does not have a screwhole crack at the back of the cab, but it does have some light scattered spots of rust on the sides of its frame and on the bottom of its frame.  Plus, it has an additional, installed plastic windshield and a plastic headlight nosepiece. The dummy A unit is likewise extremely nice and clean with no screwhole crack at the back of its cab either, and it does not have any visible rust anywhere on its frame.  It also has an installed plastic windshield and a plastic headlight nosepiece.  The front coupler struts on both the powered A unit and the dummy A unit have been replaced with red-painted Alco nose supports that closely match the original red colors. These attractive red and white Postwar Lionel #211 Texas Special Alco's are becoming harder to locate in a very good and extremely clean condition, and they would certainly be a most welcome addition to any collection or operating layout. See photos for details and e-mail seller with any questions prior to purchasing.  Please remember that (per Ebay guidelines) the grade of a train refers to the appearance and condition of the train, not to its operating capability.  And, since I am strictly a collector I do not attempt to run any of my trains.  Please see my "positive feedback" and buy with confidence.  All sales are final unless I have misrepresented these items. Seller is a member of the TCA(#91-34069) and the LCCA(#20329).
