C-8 Like New 1.Produced in andthis engine featured none of the premium features that are present on the other electric engines that Lionel manufactured. Made from a RED body with WHITE heat-stamped numbers and lettering, it was mounted on a sheet-metal chassis that has one solid and one operating magnetic tabbed coupler.
The motor was controlled by a three-position directional unit whose lever is adjustable from the top of the cab. There is no horn or headlight. The pantograph is hard to find today in undamaged condition due to the fact that it was made from very delicate plastic and is easily removed and lost. The body of this engine was also used on the No. There are two variations:. This engine was issued in set No.
What is odd is that no box has ever been found for this engine. So how was it shipped to Lionel dealers in ? One wonders if it was really available in These pages are best viewed at x x 32 bit monitor resolution This Identification Guide for Lionel Electric Trains covers the "Post-war Era" only from until These pages are best viewed at x x 32 bit monitor resolution.History The Boxcab Electric engine was a newly designed railroad item produced by Lionel in It is based upon a real-life boxcab engine built by General Electric and sold to a company in South America.
Surprisingly, Lionel's model is an excellent copy of its real-life counterpart. Features The Boxcab electric engine ran unchanged for both years. Standard features include: wheel arrangement, unpainted red body with white lettering, three-position E-unit, operating coupler at one end and a die-cast non-operating coupler at the other end plus a single pantograph on the roof.
The pantograph is a fragile item is usually broken or missing. Finally, there is no headlight on the boxcab. Only Known Variation - Shown in the photo above.

However, after many Lionel history books and searching the forums for years I thought I knew all the engines that Lionel came out with. Then, oneday I came across a website showing a Lionel boxcab.
I love boxcab engines and would have remembered one if I had seen it before, and I thought this was a fake. A little digging didn't turn muchup. Then, last week I walked into an old hobby store in a gentleman's house and he had one for sale that he had just taken in that day!
What is going on? How popular were these engines, and what variations existed for them. I see in the Lionel catalog that one was reissued for "Red River Lumber" but I mean from years ago. Neat little electric but performance was marginal. Most of them are missing original pantograph's and have either cracks or chipped out where the screw connects to hold shell on.
It adds a little bit of variety to the usual steam or diesel engines. I added headlights to mine and run it with the operating coupler and pantograph towards the rear just like in the photo of the real How did you do that? I've always toyed with the idea of putting operating headlights on a I don't know why they have such a bad rep.
Wouldn't trade my for the wolrd. I bought one off eBay.
Like NavyJack says, it runs like a top. I replaced the missing pantograph - but realized I've been running it back-ward for years too. I doubt that you were running it backwards. A locomotive like that would almost certainly be designed to run in either direction. In fact, you can see one of the headlights symmetrically located on the other end.
I would also be surprised if it didn't have two pantographs. I think I can see the left front corner of one just above the roof at the front.
Does anyone know of a better picture of the prototype? It is usual to run an electric locomotive with the rear pantograph, so that a pantograph crash will not disable the front pantograph. I don't know, but I've always assumed that to be the case.
Has anyone out there ever tried mounting a second leading truck on the other end of a ? I don't own one, so I don't know if there'd be room for another wheelset or not. Our community is FREE to join.
