1060 Lionel Lines Scout


Product Description

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. Interestingly, the 1060 appeared in four sets -- all in the Advanced Consumer catalogue, but never appearing in the annual consumer catalogue. Additionally, the 1060 has been the led locomotive in nearly 60 uncatalogued sets throughout the early to mid 1960's. Due to the large production numbers and being a very basic steam locomotive of the time, 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 Lionel Lines tenders, both being non-whistling tenders. The 1060 was produced with either the 1050T slope-back tender or the 1060T steamlined tender.
