The General Electric EP-5 electric style locomotive was introduced by Lionel in 1956 with the New Haven roadname. Lionels model of the EP5 is an accurate representation of the real-life electric. The 2352 Pennsylvania version was the third of only four EP-5's produced by Lionel during the postwar era. All postwar EP-5 are hard to locate in collector condition.
For those enthusiastic enough to install overhead wiring on a layout, the 2352 was built to use power from either Lionels center rail or from its functional pantographs. In either case, the 2352 is a smooth running and reliable electric.
