      Looks like pre war tin plate. The info I read said the 1668 engine is from '39. They made this engine first in '35 as the 1668e, they dropped the e in '39. Lionel didn't produce trains during the war and changed to plastic in stages after the war. I'd guess it's from '39-'41. I don't think it's post war. Nice streamliner choo-choo no matter what. I love tin plate.

      If you can get a close up of the couplers I might can find out more.

      Some more I read said the boxcar was from '39. I'm leaning toward '39 for the set.

      You have 2 oil tankers which is a bonus. All the other 4 pieces seem to be from the original set with the exception of the orange colored Shell oil tanker. Many sets would get mixed up from being operated with extra rolling stock being added.
      Toyrebel's information is very accurate I'm thinking along the same line that this is the 1939. It is a very nice set and a great find for you.
