FROM THE PAGES OF MODEL RAILROAD HISTORY TO YOUR RAILROAD TODAY!
For the first time in nearly 60 years, the landmark 238E Torpedo returns.
Created from historic 1930's tooling, the Torpedo is a true Lionel, combining
the vintage look and feel only Lionel can offer with the cutting edge
performance you demand today! Here's the inside story on this great locomotive.
We made an amazing discovery in our archives: the 238E tooling. The mold
produced such a beautiful casting that we knew we had to bring this 1930's icon
back to life. We've mounted the Torpedo on the smooth PullmorŪ six-wheel worm
drive from our classic B6 switcher for incredible performance. We've enhanced
her tractive effort. And for authenticity, we've created the Torpedo as she was
in real life - a 4-6-2 Pacific - and we've made her Lionel TrainMaster Command
Control equipped for dependable conventional and thrilling nothing-like-it
Command operations. Then we crafted the all new 746RS streamlined tender and
detailed, sound-insulated frame from die-cast metal. And since 746RS contains
the Railsounds Torpedo digital sound system, count on unparalleled sound
quality, 746RS rides on die-cast six-wheel trucks and features an
Electro-coupler for Command freedom. True Lionel!
The Lionel 238E also includes 1930's style metal name boards, long-life
illumination, smoke, Magne-traction, metal grab rails, authentic Pennsylvania
and Lionel Lines decoration in Brunswick green, aluminum and gold, and American
built Lionel quality. Own the legend. Own the Lionel 238E.
