Ohh ... and T-Man ... I saw LOTS of OMG price tables! (Though I guess tinplate man on the corner with his $450 238 was king of the hill!)
I have what I believe is a 1939 New York Central 4-6-4 Hudson #001E-24 6, with a model 003W tender. The number under cab is 5342. Does any or all of this info sound
right? Where can I find more info on these model numbers?

Yes, Lionel produced the 001, 002, 003, and 004 series of OO scale locos from 1938 to 1942, all 4-6-4 Hudsons.

The 003 was built in 1939 ... made for 2-rail track; lots of detail on the loco; 5342 number on cab; paired with 003W (whistle) or 003T (non-whistle) tenders. "NEW YORK CENTRAL" on tender sides.

A sought after item ... value $250 and up, as warranted by condition.

Its a shame, but that is the way it is. Its surprising how much of a difference such a small change in scale makes, even if they do run on the same track!
The problem with the ancient American OO scale, is that it is like the exact British OO scale system. The locomotives that British OO in general, runs on 4' 1" tracks, which is 4" 8 and 1/2" track in HO. The magnified look of British somewhat troubles me too, but we're just going to have to live with it. Frankly, I'm just going to guage everything between the two, and hope for the best.

That's very interesting, I never knew there were any US outline OO gauge trains produced. There was a brief period in the UK when HO models were produced which of course gives the correct track gauge. Some die hards still model in it.
