I've been looking to buy a Lionel No. 6 engine and tender for several years. The right pieces just haven't seemed to come my way until recently. I picked up a set that needs some work, but this particular loco and tender really appealed to me because they are so early - ca. 1908. Yesterday I did some work on the tender trucks, which are the very early Type I closed sided three rivet variety. It will take me some time to get this loco and tender back into shape, but it will be worth it.
