This came into my possession from a train enthusiast (t his belonged to my father who just passed away and was part of his collection) , soother than me stating that I know this runs (since I saw it operate in front ofme), I am unable to answer any detailed questions. The $7.99 for shipping includes delivery confirmation. I ship only in the US and only to confirmed PayPal address. This was sitting on a shelf for a few years & is a bit dusty. Since I don't know how to clean/detail model trains, I would rather leave the detailing to the buyer - just a heads up :-). Also, I do my best to describe this to the best of my ability; since I am not knowledgeable about trains. It is important to note that all of the trains I am selling are "as is", so please be aware of this before purchasing. Thanks for looking and !
