Steam Locomotives
& Tenders

The mainstay of Lionel's motive power fleet during the postwar era was the steam locomotive. Steam engines were available every year and in various sizes. Many choices were available when purchasing a steamer. In any given year Lionel usually offered introductory Scout steamers, to middle-of-the-line Prairies and Turbines to the heavyweights like Berkshires or Hudsons. Included with every steam locomotive was a tender. Tenders offered by Lionel also came in a variety of shapes and sizes. From the basic non-whistling tender, to tenders with a whistle, a bell, back-up lights and other options such as roadname and coupler types, Lionel created many unique steamer / tender combinations.
