THE BALTIMORE AND OHIO F-3 WAS PRODUCED DURING THE GOLDEN AGE (1956) AND ARE RARELY FOUND IN THIS CONDITION TODAY. IT HAS DUAL MOTORS, MAGNE-TRACTION AND BRIGHT COLORFUL MARKINGS OF THE B&O RAILROAD. THE MASTER CARTON IS A HIGHLY UNUSUAL FIND. INSIDE YOU WILL FIND NEAR PERFECT INNER BOXES. THE ENGINE BOX RATES A C-9 AND DUMMY BOX A C-10. THE ENGINE BOX HAS ITS INSERT WHICH IS A RARITY. MOST OF THE B&O F-3s I'VE SEEN ARE RATTLING AROUND IN THEIR BOXES. FINALLY, THE ORIGINAL INSTRUCTIONS AND ORIGINAL WRAPPING PAPER ARE INCLUDED.
IF YOU HAVE TO HAVE PERFECT UNBLEMISHED CONDITION FOR YOUR COLLECTION, THIS ENGINE FITS THE BILL. THIS UNIT IS ABSOLUTELY LIKE NEW AND OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY AND COLLECTOR GRADE SO PLEASE CONSIDER THIS IF YOU CHOOSE TO BID.
EXAMINE THE PICTURES CAREFULLY AND YOU WILL SEE THE QUALITY OF THIS FANTASTIC BALTIMORE & OHIO AA. ABSOLUTELY STUNNING CONDITION. A MAGNIFICENT TRAIN!
This pristine blue and gray beauty is as rich in color as the day it was made. With just slight run time on it, perfect boxes and the master carton makes this engine that much more desirable. To begin with, finding one that has no box rub marks is very rare. There are no handling rubs on it where most people pick them up (sides of roof in the center of the engine). In this condition it will sell for $4000-$6500 OR MORE at prime auctions and collector shows. Please consider the difficulty of finding a piece in this condition, age, rarity and the delicate nature of the paint as the driving forces of its value. We are below the market value with our reserve on this piece. Good luck if you choose to bid and email me if you have questions or need more pictures or information. I will be happy to assist you in any way I can.
