Hi. I am new to this group, but have a question. I have a Lionel 225E steam loco, that could use a new top. By that I mean my daughter surprised me with this prewar (I guess prewar) engine with a whistling tender. It appears to use spade type hooks for the cars. It was a great surprise, as I had one as a kid very similar (except mine smoked) but some idiot cut off part of the cow catcher. Don't have any idea how I could repair it. Looks like it needs a new cast top on it. Any ideas? Thanks in advance. Jack.
