Seven pole, ball bearing DC motor.  $21 retail in 1940 dollars.  Brass locomotive extra.  I have the side rods and valve gear to complete it, but just going to look at it for awhile.

Not to worry, Cox has it outnumbered by about 300 to 1. Smile

That's beautiful Robert! What gauge is it? Looks smaller than O gauge but bigger than H-O.. Huh...

I was thrilled when my Daughter recently told me that she has a Lionel set on order for under the Christmas tree! It's a Disney/Christmas themed electric set. (apparently; Lionel also makes battery-operated sets..)

Here's what she ordered (through Walmart.com)

She also really likes a Hogwarts (Harry Potter themed) Lionel set. I've got some new ideas for Christmas presents now! Very Happy

Nice Bob. So, I have to ask... Is that the motor there sticking up at the angle near the rear of the engine? And more importantly, are you going to shine it right up when you do decide to put it together after 'just looking at it for a while'?

It is HO (Half O gauge) roddie but looks larger than it is, motor too.  The motor is quite small.

Christmas time seems to bring out the model trains.  Mark has a set similar to yours that they get out and set around the tree each Christmas.  In the past I have set up an old time locomotive hauling flat cars of Cox Space Bug Jr's and probably posted a picture here.  Now I do this Hallmark locomotive.  It's HOn3 but runs on HO track.

Chancey, The rear of that motor just hangs out there, it is secured to the locomotives frame by a couple of 4/40's coming up from underneath of the front section.

Ron, that's the motors magnet.  Back end contains the brushes.  If you enlarge the illustration it shows better detail.

But, something doesn't compute.  I checked 1940 dollars against todays.  $21 equates to $385 in 2020 dollars.  Maybe that quote was from the '50's.  Didn't check that.

Gordan Varney actually designed and built that motor in the mid 1930's (and put his name on it) before he had a locomotive to put it on.
