This set exhibits extremely low run time. The two step e unit works fine and the Powered A unit is extremely fast. The Dummy A unit has a bell ringer as it's sound device and this works like new as well.
There are no broken squirts, repaired cracks or any other funny business in this magnificent set. Even the two ornamental plastic horns and the nose stickers are original Gilbert production.
You may see some boxes in the background of one of the photos. These boxes are all Dan Olson's Reproductions and are clearly marked as such. This train will be shipped in these boxes to help protect it during delivery to your train room.
This is a very difficult set to find in any condition. I certainly don't have to make any apologizes for the condition of this set. It is just gorgeous. Just look at Greenburg's Guide and study my photos.
The Pony Express set is one of the "Big Three" (Big Four if you include the 1956 NH Clipper set as I do). Don't let this beautiful and unique collector's set get away.
Good luck bidding and Happy Holidays to one and all.
