In the summer of 1934, Hudson 5344 entered New York Central's West Albany shops; before year-end, it emerged as the Commodore Vanderbilt, America's first streamlined steam locomotive. While the actual Commodore was never paired with streamlined stainless steel cars, Lionel created its own modern train by matching the 265E with chrome-plated articulated cars borrowed from its Flying Yankee model - oddly predicting the prototype Empire State Express, a 1941 NYC train that coupled a different streamlined Hudson with gleaming Budd-built passenger cars.
Customers who bought this product also commonly purchased the following combination of items. One of the last truly tinplate locomotives, the 255E manufactured by Lionel in 1935 and 1936 exclusively, included a 263W whistle tender set but was never available for separate sale. During model railroading's early history, standard gauge tinplate locomotives ruled the day.


First appearing in 1936, the tinplate 263E steam locomotive replaced the O Gauge 260 engine and was decorated in two colors; blue or gray.

The 255E contained the same boiler, frame, whistle, and 2-4-2 wheel arrangements as the late 260E but without the chugger.
255 on the engines side plates, this locomotives gunmetal coloring and nickel trim were trademarks of Lionel's tinplate models produced after 1934. Immensely appealing for all their color and flash, these giant locomotives consumed vast amounts of real estate in their owner's homes. The blue versions headed up the tinplate O Gauge Blue Comet passenger cars while the gray version originally headed two versions of 800 series freight sets.


This model was one of the first to receive a semi gloss finish rather then the traditional high-gloss finish, which graced locomotives produced before 1934.
Though the locomotive would later succumb to die-cast boilers and scale detail, this model accurately recreates all of the details specific to the 255E. Dubbed the most spectacular development in model railroading the 255E with its authentic locomotive whistle and the rhythm of its double action pistons and driving rods is characteristic of a great Mogul of the Rails.
This listing includes quality photographs and a unique description for the item you will receive. New to the 1935 catalogue, the 255E along with the red 613 series passenger cars still make up one of the rarest prewar passenger sets ever produced.
