Condition: 7 Original Box: 5 Year: 1949
Now available for sale is a super clean, all-original DL & W work caboose with searchlight. The searchlight has been tested and works properly. There is no rust nor oxidation on the staple-end trucks. The cab lettering is nice and clean, the tool boxes are complete and not damaged, but there is a small chip in the rear cab where the ladder attached to the caboose roof (a close up photo is provided).
The original box is in rough condition, but does include the insert. Additionally, someone has crossed off the number on each end flap and wrote the prewar searchlight car number on each tab (# 820).
