What you see is 40 pieces of vintage Lionel very clean track. All of the ties are black and each track is imprinted Lionel, NYC. All of the track has nice form and all pins are present. The tops of the track has been cleaned as have the tops of the ties. Occassionally you may see a small amount of surface rust on a track but it is on the bottom of the ties and is very cleanable. The shipping cost is 14.50 which is the exact cost to ship the largest flat rate box priority mail. This is very good O gauge layout track. Keep an eye out because t is a lot more coming on future auctions.
