Lionel Corporation O Gauge 263E Tinplate Locomotives Released

Check Them Out In This All-New Video

September 19, 2018 - M.T.H. Electric Trains has released a Lionel Corporation Tinplate O Gauge 263E steam locomotive passenger set in stunning Two-Tone Blue livery livery available for immediate delivery from any M.T.H. Authorized Retailer or directly from the M.T.H. Online Store

Cataloged from 1936-1939, the O gauge 263E steamer was part of the last hurrah of tinplate — Lionel’s final attempt to convince the boys of America that real steam engines had chrome-plated domes, smokestacks and piping. The 263E was the successor to — and looked very much like — Lionel’s first O gauge steamer, the 260E introduced in 1930 with great fanfare: "Boys — here is the most remarkable "O" Gauge Steam Type Locomotive that has ever been produced. Dozens of blue prints and photographs of famous new locomotives from railroads all over the country were examined, and the best features of each were utilized by Lionel’s Engineering Department in designing this locomotive. It represents a miracle of model railroad engineering."

You can see the locomotives in action on video by clicking HERE.
