227 Canadian National


Product Description

Production: 1960

The 227 Canadian National Alco A was one of the first uncatalogued locomotives Lionel produced to market to a specific part of the world. In the case of the 227, Lionel was looking to expand into the Canadian marketplace with an inexpensive locomotive. Although this Alco diesel was never the lead locomotive of a Lionel set, it is a reliable running locomotive. However, the 227 cannot be used for the long hauls as it is generally limited to three or four light freight cars!

The 227 is a stripped down locomotive with limited features. Its features (or really lack of features!) include: painted green shell with yellow lettering, headlight, dummy rear coupler only and a weight riveted to the rear of the shell for traction enhancement. There is no magnetraction or traction tire and no e-unit, so it's forward only!
