How can I tell if my O-gauge Lionel train set is pre-war or post-war?

Question by plainswalker: How can I tell if my O-gauge Lionel train set is pre-war or post-war?
I believe it is pre-war, because my father bought it used in 1947. I have an engine, coal car, 2 passenger cars, and a caboose. The passenger cars have lights inside and as I recall, you can do something to get the engine to puff smoke out of the stack. Thanks for your help!

Answer by david c
I did two goog searches using these terms:

Lionel 752w engine
and
diagrams of lionel train motors

Looks like there are a few books
that are published on the subject.
Kalmbach publishes one of them.

I’m not that familiar with train stuff,
but I’m willing to bet you could find a good
contact through one of those links.

Lionel Toy Train Christmas Pre-War Layout

Friday, January 27th, 2012

Here’s a little treat for Christmas: the loud rumblings of Lionel prewar toy train heaven snapping and popping its merry way down the tinplate track of yesteryear! And I mean “loud”! These old trains make a racket…but there is no sweeter melody to the ears of toy train fans! This is a 4×8 layout that I built in the style of an Art Deco department store display. Features the Pennsylvania Torpedo on the lower level, and a vintage 259E making loops on the top track. Featured in a past issue of Classic Toy Trains magazine. Hear that lonesome whistle blow! Merry Christmas!
