222 Rio Grande
The 222 Rio Grande only appeared in the 1962 Advanced Lionel catalogue. It has few features and has limited interest by today's collectors. Finding a collectable version will take some effort, but the prices tend to be reasonable.
Standard features of the 222 Rio Grande include: yellow painted body with black lettering, closed front pilot with ledge, traction tire, illuminations and no E-unit (forward only). It also lacks a frame box between the trucks.
