1060 Scout Locomotive
Production: 1960 - 1962
The 1060 steam locomotive is frequently referred to 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 reserved for beginner or starter sets. These locomotives had few features and could rarely pull more than a three or four car freight train. The 1060 included a slightly more advanced motor assembly when compared to Scout steamers from the prior year and is a fairly good and reliable running locomotive.
The 1060 was introduced in 1960 in the consumer Advanced Catalogue. It was available in numerous catalogued and uncatalogued sets and was a very basic steam locomotive of the time as it had few features. There is minimal collector interest in this steam engine.
The 1060 steam locomotive included the following features: unpainted black plastic boiler white lettering, forward-only and no reversing unit, a single metal drive rod on each side plus a headlight and headlight lens.
The 1060 was available with one of two tenders, both being non-whistling tenders. The 1060 was produced with either the 1050T slope-back tender or the 1060T steamlined tender.
