This one is an awesome runner, loaded with all the goodies like odyssey, legacy sounds and control, excellent heavy smoke and sounds that are second to none, the quilling whistle is a blast to operate and it will pull everything you throw at it. My layout is not complete and does not have a complete loop so the engine was ran basically back and forth every now and then just to see it move so it is in perfect like new condition, comes with original box, paper work, double header coupler and other accessories that came in the box. I am seeing the grey ones go for 1100.00, cant find any black versions so I will let it ride for 3 days and if no one grabs it I might just keep it....
