VW and ZW Type Transformer Manual Set consisting of 10 pages. This set covers the VW and ZW type transformers. These were the largest of the transformers manufactured by Lionel during the postwar period. These transformer were advertised as being able to operate four individual trains on four variable voltage circuits, however the two inner controls had no whistle or directional controls. These transformers have both power and short circuit light indicators. Lionel used the same case for both the VW and ZW, but internally they were different. The first of these massive transformers appeared in 1948 and remained available into late 1956. In early 1957 Lionel released the ZW(R) version. Like its immediate predecessor, the (R) version remained at 275 watts. Although the outside of the transformer appears the same as previous versions, Lionel made major internal changes to improve the transformer and reduce assembly time at the factory. The ZW(R) version is stamped on the bottom base plate with  ZW(R).

Here are the four (4) versions of this large transformer:

  • VW-150: 150 Watts available produced 1948 through 1949
  • ZW-250: 250 Watts available produced 1948 through 1949
  • ZW-275: 275 Watts available produced 1950 through 1956
  • ZW-275(R): 275 Watts available produced 1950 through 1956

The service manual pages offered here cover the early versions, ZW-150; ZW-250 and ZW-275. The "R" version is covered in a separate set of manual pages. We do not print and mail these manuals. After purchase, you will receive and email with a download link so that you can download the manual.
