Lionel Trains Locomotive No. 1654 Variation A

Lionel Trains Locomotive No. 1654The Lionel Columbia Type 2-4-2-Locomotive No. 1654 would be available for two years beginning in 1946. The number "1654" is rubber stamped on the cab, and it featured nickel hand rails, bell and whistle. A three position directional unit whose control lever protrudes through the top of the boiler just in front of the cab, controls the direction of the engine. The tender was rubber-stamped "LIONEL LINES," was of all sheet metal construction, and was equipped with staple-end trucks with one electronic coupler. The two variations involve the tender that either had a whistle (Variation A) or did not (Variation B). This locomotive was designed to work on O27 track, but will also run on the larger radius O gauge track.
