The 2034 steam locomotive was designated by Lionel as a Scout locomotive. Lionel used the word Scout to denote its entry-level 027 steam locomotives. Generally speaking, Scout engines had a 2-4-2 wheel arrangement and were primarilly used in beginner or starter sets. These locomotives had few features and could rarely pull more than a three or four car freight train.

The 2034 was only produced in one year -- 1952. Although this was classified as a Scout locomotive, it used a die-cast boiler as well as a three position E-unit.

Finally, the lifespan, usage and number of the 2034 are a bit of an oddity:

To this day, the 2034 remains an oddity. Experienced collectors believe Lionel probably had bigger plans for the scout series in future years. Looking back, however, we notice 1953 was the final year for the scount series -- until they were re-introduced in the late 1950's as the 200 series -- and in a significantly cheapened version.

The end result is the 2034 steamer is a fairly hard locomotive to locate. Because of it's classification as a scout steamer, collectors generally pay little attention to this locomotive. The good news for collectors of the scout series is the 2034 is a fairly reasonably priced engine for a fairly hard item to locate.

The 2034 Scout steam locomotive included the following features: die-cast boiler painted black, silver lettering, three position E-unit, a single metal drive rod on each side, functional headlight plus a headlight lens.

The 2034 was produced with the 6066T non-whistling tender.
