Lionel pre-225e



Built 1938-42. Both engine and tender are die-cast. The 225E came out in 1938 and was the only one of the die-cast unstreamlined steamers that did not look like a hudson. The 225 has a super-heater cylinder at the top of the boiler front with a two level running board. In 1939 the 225E came with the 2235W and 2245W die-cast tenders. Both engines and tenders came in gray or black, with the Gray version being made in 1939 only. The final production version of the 225E was painted black and came with a 2235 tender with plastic body.
