These are photographs of a 1938 Lionel Flying Yankee. My father, whom we buried Thursday, received them as a gift in 1938. I do remember the set's running. Dad did have to ship it off to New York in the mid-1960s for repair. I do remember its running after its return from New York. As is obvious, it is in pretty rough shape. It sat in a wood box in the basement of my father's house in Ipswich, Massachusetts for about forty years. He lived near the seashore next to a pond, if that has anything to do with the corrosion. Obviously, I will have to have it restored. I do want to figure out if the power unit still will function. The question: Is it safe to connect a modern Lionel power supply to a pre-War locomotive? The wheels on the power unit will turn by hand. I have uploaded the power supply information, as well. There are two other locomotives, both the standard Lionel 2-4-2 type. One is from 1938 and is in even worse shape than the Flying Yankee. The other one is from sometime between the late 1950s and early 1960s. The second one is plastic. I seem to recall that Dad bought it at either a rummage sale or from the Goodwill. It was for me any my brother to run, as Dad did not want small children to touch his pre-War Lionel. The 1938 metal locomotive is locked up. The plastic one's drivers will spin if turned by hand. Thank you in advance for any help that anyone can offer.
