KUSAN: KF-119E SATELLITE TRAIN IN INCREDIBLE LIKE NEW CONDITION IN IT'S ORIGINAL SET BOX ADDRESSED TO MONTGOMERY WARD WITH ALL INSERTS AND PAPERWORK! FOR THOSE OF YOU FAMILAR WITH THE BOOK RECENTLY AUTHORED BY ROGER CARP: "101 CLASSIC TOY TRAINS: THE BEST OF THE POSTWAR YEARS" THE SATELLITE TRAIN IN THAT BOOK IS MINE THAT I LOANED TO ROGER TO PHOTOGRAPH. HE WANTED THE BEST OF THE BEST AND I SUPPLIED IT. THIS SET IS AS GOOD OR MAYBE EVEN BETTER THAN THAT SET! PURCHASED FROM THE ORIGINAL OWNERS WHO HAD A LIONEL 3 RAIL LAYOUT.....THEY JUST LOVED THE WAY THE TRAIN LOOKED AND BASICALLY JUST DISPLAYED IT ON A SIDING ON THEIR LAYOUT. THEY KEPT ALL OF THE INSERTS, PLASTIC BAGS, PAPER WORK, INSTRUCTIONS, ENVELOPE, WARRANTY CARD, AND INCREDIBLY ONE OF THE ORIGINAL RED TOOTHPICKS TO GO IN TO THE ORIGINAL STYROFOAM BALL FOR THE DYNAMIC COMPRESSORTRON. THE DIESEL LOCO WAS TEST RUN ON A COUPLE PIECES OF STRAIGHT TRACK BUT THAT WAS IT! THE DC TRANSFORMER CORD HAS NEVER BEEN UNWOUND! ALTHOUGH THERE ARE A FEW VERY MINUTE PAINT CHIPS FROM AGE ON THE RED ACCESSORY ITEMS AND ON THE LOCO THIS SET IS AS CLOSE TO NEW AS YOU WILL FIND! PLEASE SEE THE PHOTOS OF THE RED PAINTED BLOWER NOZZLE AND RED PAINTED BECON TOP TO VIEW THE MOST NOTICEABLE CHIPS. THIS IS NOT IMPACT DAMAGE BUT MORE A RESULT OF IMPROPER PREPARATION OF THESE PLASTIC SURAFACES AT THE FACTORY BACK IN THE 1950s CAUSING A SLIGHT ADHESION PROBLEM. ALSO INCLUDED: THE SELDOM EVER SEEN ORIGINAL INTERNAL BOX FOR THE TRACK, THE ORIGINAL SEPERATE PAPER WORK FOR THE TRANSFORMER (inside the tranformer box), THE ORIGINAL UNCOUPLER STILL IN IT'S ORIGINAL BOX, AND THE TINY INSERT FOR THE FRAGILE RADAR ANTENNAE & THE SEARCHLIGHT HOUSING! A SET YOU WILL BE PROUD TO OWN AND DISPLAY! FOR THOSE WANTING TO CHANCE RUNNING THIS BEAUTIFUL SET I DID TEST THE LOCO AND IT RUNS AND ILLUMINATES.
