2329 Virginian E-33
The Virginian E-33 Rectifier is highly prized by collectors today. Lionel made only one of these with the striking BLUE and YELLOW colors of the Virginian Railroad. Lionel produced this engine only two years during the post-war period: 1958-59. Not particularly attractive engine, the prototype was designed to haul lengthy coal loads over the Appalachian mountains, which was not a glamourous job to begin with.
