At auction is this unmarked (but made in Japan) Steam loco in a 2-10-10-2 drive configuration. The tender, with no markings, is also provided. This is all brass. Procured from an estate. Externally, this is a dream and was carefully displayed in a display case. Internally, however, this item needs work. I do not know the extent of the problems. I was able to get electrical continuity and heard an audible buzz. The lights also came on. However, I could not get it to run. I took the loco to my local Train Shoppe. There, we were unable to get the buzz and I was told nobody in Salt Lake City would service a brass locomotive anymore. Apparently, brass locos are over 40 years old and out of vogue. So, the bottom line is, I don't know what the problems are and am selling this item as is.
I have received numerous requests regarding the boxes. Alas, I don't have them. Also, I have photos of the bottoms of the loco and the tender, as well as the cab. So, don't hesitate to ask for them in an eBay message.
