1415WS: Four Car Steam Freight Set
With 1946 being the first full year of postwar train production for Lionel, it wanted to design and built an impressive, all-new locomotive for their line-up of motive power. The end result was the 20-wheel steam turbine! Outfit 1415WS is one of five new 1946 sets to include Lionel's new 2020 steam turbine locomotive.
