|The 2383 was the longest running production Lionel F3 set, being produced from 1958 through to 1966. With Magnetraction and two Pullmor motors, these engines could (and still do) handle just about any train thrown at them. There are three significant variations: units made in 1958 (which are apparently the rarest), engines made from 1959 through to 1963, and engines made in 1964 through to 1966. The arrows on the main picture here show the difference between the thick oval decal (1958 and possibly early 1959), the thin oval decal (late 1959 through to 1963), and the thin oval decal with an uninterrupted black oval (produced 1964 to 1966). Reference: "Lionel's Postwar F3's" by Joe Algozzini, Greenberg Books, 1995. All 2383's are painted in the Santa Fe's famous Warbonnet paint scheme with a red and silver body and yellow and black rubber-stamped detailing stripes. They have louvres in the roof instead of having the wire mesh screens. The portholes are closed - molded into the body itself. The lettering is heat-stamped in black - as are the GM logos. The frame is painted silver and the trucks are chemically blackened. The wraparound Santa Fe decal on the nose has thick striping. External features include one piece ornamental horns, molded cab door ladder, window shell, number boards, and headlight lens. Additional features include twin vertical Pullmor motors, Magne-traction, three position E-unit, interior lighting/headlights, horn in powered unit, and operating couplers on the pilot trucks. The 2383 pair was never offered with a B unit. However, the 2243C with it's black trucks is almost a perfect match.
