Condition: 7 Original Box: N/A Year: 1965
Now available for sale is a beautiful, all-original yellow and blue Virginian FM Trainmaster diesel. This locomotive was only produced for two years in the mid-1960's and is somewhat hard to find these days in collectable condition. This locomotive has been thoroughly cleaned, serviced, tested and runs like a champ! And best of all -- there are no screwhole cracks on either end of the shell! The base and trucks are clean and free of rust and oxidation while the exterior colors are vibrant and the lettering is crisp and clean.
The only apologies on this locomotive are the typical tarnishing on all of the walkways plus a very small 1/4" x 1" spot of something on the cab side. There is an up-close photo above of the mark and quite possible could have occurred at the factory. From a foot away, you do not see this blemish. Other than these two items, the rest of the shell is close to condition 8!
Finally, if you'd like the walkways to be replaced with new, clean and shiny walkways, that can be done for an additional $35.
