The early versions of the 258 had a 2-4-0 arrangement and had an orange stripe along the running boards. The first was the Ives/Lionel 258, the second was the Lionel 258 called (Early) in our archive.
This version of the 258, was the last one offered by Lionel, in 1941. The body style was taken from the prior 259E. The first ones were issued in Gunmetal gray, and the late issues were painted Black. They came with the 1689T typically, and some came with the 1689W.
