Fresh out of a local estate we acquired this 1958 set with the rare 21115 Pennsylvania Locomotive , Matching Tender and 4 cars which i believe are part to the Trail Blazer Freight Set , This set appears to have spent most of its time packed away in its original boxes . To me everything looks nice and clean , the only damage found is the one car has a chip on the top corner and the one metal ring around the wheel spins freely on the locomotive. The engine and tender boxes have matching numbers.We are not train experts and I didn't trust fully testing it with the wheel loose and the track which was in another box had surface rust. I did have it on the track and it did attempt to run and the light on the smoke stack and front lit up. that is all the testing we did , I did not try the deluxe caboose, but i'm sure it works fine as clean as it is. The 21115 engine shows no other breaks, rust, or repairs other then the wheel mentioned. The box is in nice shape with no tears. The tender is nice and clean with no rust or breaks. The box has tear to the flap. The number 24619 deluxe caboose is very nice with no rust or breaks. Looks complete. Box also has a tear on the flap. #24112 container gondola has the 5 original silver containers. The car and containers have no breaks. Box has torn flaps. The 24213 Hopper car has a small piece broke off the one bottom corner. Box flaps have wear. #24016 Katy box car has the small chip on top corner otherwise in nice condition. Box has wear and tear to flaps. The 2450 train set outer box does have staining dry rot damage and writting on the top. If you have any questions please ask. Thanks for looking and good luck. A member has asked us to look at the tender to see if the 2 small delicate steps at the back were missing. Yes they are missing. We did not know that it was to have them. But from what the person said it is common for them to be broke or missing. The front steps are intact with no breaks or cracks. If there is something else we should be looking for please contact us because we are not experts in this field of collectables. Thank you I wanted to let everyone know the tender is fine with no missing or broke back steps. Person mistakenly was thinking of the tender for the Hudson Engine not for one in our listing.
