Condition: 7++ Original Box: 6 Year: 1950
Here's a beautiful set of Union Pacific Alco AA diesels wearing the traditional yellow and gray UP colors. The exterior of each diesel has vibrant colors, the side lettering is complete and not faded and the front decals are in near perfect condition. Even the frames and interior are as clean as the exterior. Additionally, both units have been cleaned, serviced, tested and operates just as designed by Lionel 65+ years ago.
Other than some box rub marks, the only blemish on the diesel is a hairline crack in the rear of the trailer unit that is about 1/2 " in length. It's a minor crack, but nonetheless, it is present (a close up of this is in the photos above). Except for this blemish, the rest of the diesels are easily graded in condition 8!
Also included is the original master carton. However all three of the inserts are missing and the exterior seam of the box is missing the original tape to secure the box together.
