This is a Lionel 6-16661 Flatcar with Operating Boat. There are no issues with it that I can see. It comes in its original box, which is in good condition with no missing or broken flaps.This item belonged to an avid collector who recently died ofcancer. His widow had no idea how tosell this collection, but she knew that she’d be lucky to receive half the value of the collection from a dealer. As a result, I was contacted by a family friend who knew the widow and asked me to help him sell her collection of several hundred Lionel and Marx train items. I’ve had the items in my basement for a few months now, and am selling them for her with the help of my father and two other TCA members (Penn State professors). I would like to maximize their value as she needs the money for her living expenses. I am doing my best to represent the true quality of this item, and if you would like any additional pictures please contact me. Due to numerous stories I have heard of buyers switching items and returning them, I will not be accepting returns for this item. However, you are welcome to view and pick up the items in person at my location in central Pennsylvania.
