Whew! These two 6440 and one 6441 were a part of the late 1940's 1426WS set that was headed, I believe by either the 2025 or 2026 engines. Three very clean cars with original boxes. All have been tested and lights work. The color and paint on these is exceptionally nice. There is some rubs(can't really call them scratches as the green is still present) and mars on the tops......I guess that is the way to explain it as the green is still strong but you can see some difference in the paint. The yellow is great and the lettering is mostly very strong......there are some spots where the letters or numbers are a bit weak. These were purchased from a guy who said his Dad bought this and many of the other boxed Lionel pieces I have listed in around 1948 for him to play with someday. Space limitations left most of these neat pieces tucked away until he recently got rid of them. Most all of the pieces haves some tape/residue on one end of the box along with some handwritten markings. Shipping on this item is $13.50.I will be selling a number of exceptionally clean and well maintained Marx, American Flyer, Lionel and Plasticville items beginning on 11/23 and ending on 12/11……most of the auctions will begin on Thursday evening and end 10 days later on the following Sunday evening. These items from Prewar, Postwar and the Modern eras mostly come from a train repair shop and a private collection. Although, most of the items are original, I can not be certain that all pieces are original and that some of the pieces have not had any touch up. Most of the equipment has been freshly serviced and is in tip-top running condition……if not it will be clearly stated in each piece’s description. Many of the pieces come in their original boxes and some have not ever been used…..again if a box is included it will say so in the description. Please note that the photos of each listing include boxes as a photo backdrop and may not be included in the listing. I list the shipping costs with each item……I can hit this pretty close and it saves a great deal of time post-auction in turning around the transaction. I can ship internationally but I will have to get a price for shipment after the auction ends. Further, I will gladly consolidate multiple auction winnings so as to save on shipping costs. As a final thought, I can receive Paypal payments but prefer not as the rates they charge have gotten ridiculous. Thank You.
