Lionel No. 2526W 1958 Santa Fe Passenger Set - MTOB

OK, are you looking for the best in collectible trains, well it is - the No. 2526W Santa Fe Super Chief Passenger Set. This was Lionel's top of the line passenger set of 1958. This Set includes the No. 2383 Santa Fe F-3 AA Diesels with Dual Motors, Horn and Magnetraction, the No. 2530 Baggage Car, and the flat-channeled No. 2531 Silver Dawn Observation Car, and two flat-channel No. 2532 Silver Range Vista Domes.
This is a fantastic set of Postwar "0" gauge Trains. The trains themselves don't get much better. All of them unrun - have never been on the track (see rollers). The engines look perfect. Full decals with one being the rare full-oval version, bright silver, unrun wheels. Virtually spotless. The passenger cars are also all unrun. I do see some minor wear on the roofs, probably from box rubs, or display. The bottoms and wheels are mint across all the cars. The boxes are correct for the trains. One box missing an end flap, and overall some wear and a few missing flaps. Set box has some wear on the corners, but overall is excellent. If you looking for the best in postwar, this is it! A highly desirable set of Lionel trains. Buyer pays shipping (Insurance is included in the shipping and handling fees for items over $300). Please check out my other items currently listed, and save on shipping. NO RESERVE.
