2153WS Four Car Steam Freight Set


Outfit 2153WS was catalogued for a single year; 1949. It is an interesting set as it was catalogued by Lionel as a work train deluxe set -- but lead by a high-speed turbine! Looking back -- it's an odd combination, but for any child opening this set on Christmas morning -- those details were lost in the excitement and fun offered by this outfit.

Additionally, outfit has the dubious distinction of being the final postwar Lionel set to offer both the 671 turbine and the 2460 crane car as both wuld be retired from future Lionel outfits. Lastly, the set frequently appears with the rare green generator on the 6520 searchlight car.

Standard components of this set include:

  • 671 Turbine
  • 2671W Whistling Tender
  • 2460 Crane Car
  • 3469 Ore Dump Car
  • 6520 Searchlight Car
  • 6419 D.L. & W. Work Caboose
  • Plus: O gauge track, UCS uncoupling track, smoke pellets, billboards and instruction booklet.
