old postwar lionel outfit help?
I recently bought a old postwar lionel train outfit.....I was wondering if anyone could help me find any information on it?(any manuals, instructions, or websites that would have a replacement motor, the one that it came with is burn out and doesn't work)I contacted lionel.com with no avail and Brasseur electric trains didn't have much but the engine order # which they do not sell. on the outfit box there is NO.19563. and the engine is a #241
Also while doing research of my own i found a picture(link below) of the same one (mine is just not near this good condition and is missing some things).
Any information would be great

Joshua Lionel Cowen
August 25, 1877
Date of death
September 8, 1965)
Joshua Lionel Cowen (August 25, 1877-September 8, 1965), born Joshua Lionel Cohen, was an American inventor and the cofounder of Lionel Corporation, a manufacturer of model railroads and toy trains.
Cowen invented the flash-lamp in 1899, an early photographer's flash light source. He did not invent the flashlight as many sources say. David Misell, a British subject, did patent it - in turn immediately selling it to Conrad Hubert, the person that introduced it to the world through his novelty shop that eventually became Ever Ready Company.
The eighth of nine children of Jewish immigrants and a college dropout (he enrolled both at Columbia University and the City College of New York), Cowen received his first patent in 1899, for a device that ignited a photographer's flash. The same year, Cowen received a defense contract from the United States Navy to produce mine fuses that netted him $12,000. The following year, Cowen and one of his partners founded Lionel Corporation in New York City.
Cowen had built his first toy train at age 7, attaching a small steam engine to a wooden locomotive he had carved.
The engine exploded, damaging his parents' kitchen. Cowen sold his first electric train in 1901 to a store owner in Manhattan, intending to use the train to call attention to other merchandise. The store owner returned the next day to order six more trains, because customers wanted to buy the store display. By 1902, Lionel was primarily a toy train manufacturer. He started his company, the Lionel Corporation.
Although Cowen often gave his birthdate as 1880, he was actually born three years earlier, and Cowen [legally] changed the spelling of his last name from the original Cohen in 1910, possibly to obscure his Jewish heritage.
Cowen's marketing skills ultimately made him more money than his talents at invention. The tradition linking toy trains to Christmas originated in Germany in the mid 1800s. It was expanded by Cowen, who in the 1920s convinced the owners of large department stores to incorporate elaborate train setups, which he provided, around their large Christmas tree displays, hoping to increase demand among small boys for toy trains as Christmas gifts. Lionel was soon the largest of three American toy train manufacturers, and for a short time in the early 1950s, Lionel was the largest toy manufacturer in the world. However, by the mid-1950s, public interest had shifted from trains to airplanes and slot cars.
Cowen retired in 1959, selling his 55,000 shares of Lionel stock to his great-nephew Roy Cohn. He died in 1965 in Palm Beach, Florida. He is buried in Brooklyn, New York.
