This was my father's Ives, Motor 3255. He got this when he was a kid. He treasured it and kept it in a display case for as long as I can remember (60+ years). It looks to be very complete but you be the judge.
Please look at pictures and ask questions if needed. My father always told me it was Rare and that the Lionel Train company bought Ives in the early 1900's, not sure of that.You can see the Patient date on the bottom brass plate. If it is correct, the engine is 109 years old. Hard to believe because it does not look that old. That said, not sure if my Dad ever had any restoration work done to it.
