Condition (TCA details below): C-9, unused, unrun, displayed, Not C-10 because it got dusty, and I test ran it.

Box / Condition: all original packaging, has super clean box, also included are brochures & original receipts, and tools.

Description: Rare because its much easier to find the live steam version of this than the electric version, This was on display for years but never covered, it had enough dust to grow crops in. I cleaned it up, but I'm not perfect. I test ran it, and it runs slow and not completely smooth, and of course it squeaked (needs oil). Has tools and instruction sheets. Nice Train. Display Case Not Included.

Returns: No returns on this item, because I cannot afford for someone to buy it, run it, and then want to return it because it was just too big for their layout. (believe me I get this every month) I cannot afford to ship this back to me.
