The 1033 Transformer is a medium-sized 90 watt transformer and can control a single set of trains. It is designed to operate layouts no larger than on a 4' x 8' table.

Except for some beginner sets, the 1033 was included in all 027 and O gauge Lionel sets produced between 1948 and 1956. It was the backbone of Lionel's transformer production for nine years. Because of its reliability and durability, the 1033 remains a preferred transformer in today's train community.

Standard features of the 1033 include:
