Original Lionel Prewar Hiawatha Passenger Set. I acquired this set from original owner probably 35 years or so ago. I never ran it on my layout but had it displayed on shelving until it was packed away about 10 years ago. 250E Steam Locomotive Engine/no box. I track tested the engine and it runs forward…. Runs very quietly and smoothly. The e-unit is “sticky” and at times you have to tap the top of the engine to get it to rotate. This engine has the thicker boiler casting and also the diecast front truck (see close up pic) which is the more desirable variation of this engine to find. 250W 12-Wheel Whistle Tender/no box. Track tested and whistle and whistle relay work… However, it “groans and grinds” and is in need of lubrication. I didn’t want to take the time to dismantle the tender to lubricate it so I will leave this up to the new owner. 782 Head End Passenger Car/OB… Nice solid original box still sealed at one end. The die cast head end casting is broken on the underside where the stud for connecting the tender should be. I simply inserted a screw/nut and this worked well while I had it displayed… See close up pic. Both sides of the car are pictured. There is warp-age of the maroon frame on this car which is not uncommon. Use zoom feature on pic to see. 784 Observation Passenger Car/OB… Check my other listings for more trains… The item “PREWAR LIONEL HIAWATHA PASSENGER SET 250E STEAM ENGINE 250W TENDER 782 783 784″ is in sale since Monday, April 5, 2021.
