It is painted in the attractive black and red paint scheme. The engine is die cast which often suffers from metal fatigue. The engine is the manual reversing version with the reverse lever inside the cab. It runs good in both directions. The paint on the engine appears original. The drive wheels, trailing wheels and the side rods are new replacement parts. There is a crack in the cab window strut on the right side. The running board on the right side has also been repaired. The pilot casting has been broke and repaired and needs to be replaced and may not survive shipping. The tender is #40 and is also die cast. It may have been repainted but it's hard to tell since it is black. The draw bar is new and the coal pile has definitely been repainted. The trucks, couplers, and remaining trim is original.
