Hi Everyone; I've got 6 Lionel O gauge, 3-track Engines & 6 Lionel O gauge 3-track Tenders but have no idea which ones go together. I'm hoping the experts here can help me match them up? Thanks. PM me if you like. Also; if anyone can give me an idea of the values of these pieces I'd be very greatful.

Here are the Engines

Model 2065 Engine

Model 2046 Engine

Model 1656 Engine

Model 675 Engine

Model 224 Engine

Model 623 Engine


Here are the Tenders

Model 46086 Tender

Model 6466T Tender

Model 2671 W tender (one of two of the same)

Model 2671 W Tender (Two of Two of the same)

Model 2671 I Tender

Unknown Model Tender

First loco, 2065, looks like the one here and here.

Second one looks like this.

Simply go to eBay and search on Lionel 2065, Lionel 2046, etc. That's what I did to find these.

Notice that some sellers are more knowledgeable and will give you more information than others.

Oh... and loco #6 is a diesel, so I don't think it should have a tender. You may be missing a steam loco somewhere.

Best!

Using the website I mentioned in your General Discussion thread, I matched some of them up... One question, do any of the tenders have whistles? If one has a whistle it will be considerably heavier than a tender without a whiste, and it will also have pick-up rollers on the trucks...

  • The 224 engine technically goes with a 2466 tender, but I would stick it with the 6466 tender since the only difference between the two is the number... Also because both this locomotive and tender do not have any white paint on them...
  • The 623 diesel switcher does not have a tender just like Lownen said above...
  • The 675 engine goes with the 2466 or 6466 tender, and this is what your "unknown" tender would go with... The unknown tender is not a 6466 as has the handrails on the end... I can not find which specific tender has this feature though, but there is no difference in the bodies...
  • The 1656 engine (called a switcher) goes with the 46086 tender, although are you sure that is the correct number on the tender?
  • Now both the 2046 and 2065 engines are supposed to have 2046 tenders... Those tenders look like the 2671's but have two axle trucks instead of three... Are you sure that your "2671W (two of two of the same)" is not a 2046 tender? Anyways, the 2671 tenders went with the turbine engines which Lionel made...

I do not know, personally I would consider selling the 2046 locomotive, the 2065 locomotive, and the three 2671's seperatly, then sell the others in the sets which I mentioned... That white paint on the steamers and tenders, and the yellow paint on the diesel switcher will probably hurt the value a little, but they should still fetch your friend a pretty penny :D

From the photos the tenders you have labeled 2671W appear to have center pickup rollers. I would guess that they have whistles. It looks like the others do not, except for the 46086, on which I see no pickup rollers, but which appears to have electrical connections that would run to its loco.

Glad to be of help Rideauwrangler. You might look at the back ends of the locomotives and see if any have sockets to plug those tender wires into.

Boston&Main... this sure looks like a single-roller pickup to me:

I was going to start another new thread but I don't want to get too crazy on my first day!

I've been researching items on the net and eBay and I still have so many questions for you guys; one in particular is I see a lot of "HO Weston Campbell" people used in model rail roads going for what I consider pretty high prices ($15-$25 for one figure). I've got a bag of probably 50 die-cast metal people, all types; how can I identify what they are? Any resources for this kind of thing? I couldn't find anything for "HO Weston Campbell".

That is meant to represent a water scoop. This device, on the prototype, allowed the tender to scoop water at speed from a trough of water between the rails, eliminating the need for a stop to refill the tender.

The thingy you have circled as the pickup roller is the water scoop. These are seen on 2046 tenders unless of course it's missing.:) Ed Guess I forgot to read page 2.

I am pretty sure that he meant Ed to mean edit... He read through the first page and posted a reply to the question, not realizing that someone had already answered it on the next page of posts...

Either way, I'm glad that thread got brought forward----I'd never heard of scoop tenders. "allowed the tender to scoop water at speed from a trough of water between the rails..." Man, I'll bet that was one big jolt when the scoop hit the water! I'll bet they didn't try that on passenger trains!

It was use especially on express passenger trains, so, they didn't have to stop so many times.

With the mass of a steam engine, pulling 12-14 heavyweight 80 foot passenger cars (prolly around 1500 tons), you wouldn't even feel that.
