Lionel Post War 2363 Illinois Central A/B F3 / All Original Diesels Set. This listing is for a set of 2363 Illinois Central A and B unit diesel engines that are in better than average condition but were obviously used and played with for years before the value was realized. See all photos as they are the description and it is up to you to decide the condition because we do not get involved in grading. Different people have different ideas as to what is considered a letter grading as well as to TCA standards some would call a C8 while others might feel it's a C7 etcetera. We do not touch up, repaint, replace broken parts, or modify the item listed in anyway.
Here are the issues we see on these units but even with the few issues it's a great pair of diesels from the post war era. The 2363 Illinois Central diesels are twin vertical motors and boast great magnatraction abilities with the horn mechanics located in the power A unit.
The engine was put on a test track and cycled forward/neutral/reverse/neutral/forward and ran correctly. If it is to be run on a layout or for a continuous period of time it should be cleaned and lubricated properly. The power unit shell was removed to show the interior and condition of all parts. The horn was tested with a fresh D cell battery and function with a loud tone, scratch low tone, then back to loud tone. This usually indicates a dirty or loose ground terminal as the relay is latching correctly.
As we state in many listings the actual horn has no guaranty to its functionality once you receive it. Even new working Lionel horns have been found to be temperamental on occasions. The shells have nicks, scratches, and some fading as seen in the photos but could be touched up with IC2363 brown paint and a tooth pick or fine brush.
We do not engage in touch ups to make a unit more attractive for sale. We feel this is not an honest way to do business and you receive the unit exactly as found and shown in photos.I hope the above description of what we can see and tested plus all photos helps in your decision for purchasing. We do consider offers however don't waste my time or yours with ridiculous low ball offers. The asking price is more than reasonable for this better than average condition 2363 Illinois Central A/B F3 engines.
