Lionel Blue Comet No 400E Locomotive Engine There are a several issues with the engine which will require restoration. I have pictures of these areas in the listing. The engines main frame casting is cracked at the forward portion of the frame. This caused the front boiler plate cover to push outward and it also the main frame to warp some. The engines wheels will need to be replaced because of deterioration The engine does have missing paint/chips and during restoration it would require repainting. There is no binding of the engines motor when the wheels are rotated.

My client who is consigning these with us unexpectedly passed away late last year. If you go through my completed auctions and look for Standard Gauge trains that we have sold you'll be able to see the feedback we received for restored and non-restored trains. I believe his intentions were to restore this and I'm including some items which may or may not be restoration parts. My apology in advance if they are not for this train since I had to sort through several boxes of loose items. I can not guarantee the operational status of the set since we can no longer verify it with him, please take that into account while bidding. I'd be more than happy to answer any of your questions so if you have any email us. Thanks, and good luck bidding!
