If you want one cheaper you may have to repair it and its costly. Even the new parts do not fit and have to be modified. It is a very nice Lionel 254 in Great condition. Bought this awhile ago as original but did not run and need to be cleaned up and parts missing. I left the shell as is still very nice.
Frame was cleaned and all parts cleaned & polished, some missing so any missing parts I replaced. It was rewired and serviced. See pictures of it running. I had clean all the brass & parts, Great wheels, serviced and rewired, Cleaned manual switch, new lights.
