I am not a train collector or expert. Most ofthe description here is taken from notes left by my late father (the collector) and hanging out around him over the years. If I have rated this item as "Excellent" or "Good" for instance, it is from an amateur perspective, not that of a TCA member. Likewise, if I have stated that the item seems to be original, then I see no obvious signs of repainting or alternation but subtle indications may have alluded me. Again I am no expert and I have been fooled by well done restorations in the past. CAVEAT EMPTOR!

I have provided multiple close-up photographs in the hopes that you will be able to judge the quality and/or originality of the item yourself. If I have incorrectly identified something, please let me know, so that I can modify the description. All items are offered on a "as is" basis and no returns are accepted .
