Lionel 2018 Steam Locomotive 1956-59

Lionel postwar 2018 steam loco

Lionel made the 2018 steamer from 1956 to 1959. It’s the same as the Lionel 2037, but doesn’t have Magnetraction. The 2018 came with or without a whistle tender.

The 2018 has a metal boiler, smoke and 3-position e-unit.

Lionel made a few rare blue 2018 locomotives as samples for a boys train. The boys train wasn’t produced because the girls train didn’t sell very well.
