Production: 1948 - 1956
The 1033 Transformer is a medium-sized 90 watt transformer and can control a single set of trains. It is designed to operate layouts no larger than on a 4' x 8' table.
Except for some beginner sets, the 1033 was included in all 027 and O gauge Lionel sets produced between 1948 and 1956. It was the backbone of Lionel's transformer production for nine years. Because of its reliability and durability, the 1033 remains a preferred transformer in today's train community.
Standard features of the 1033 include:
- 90 watts
- Single control to operate one train
- Directional control
- Horn and whistle control
- Constant voltage output terminal posts
