Condition: 9 Original Box: 4 Year: 1946
Up for sale is a near-new turbine locomotive and tender that run and look like it was produced a few months ago! The exterior colors are stunning and there are no apologizes on either unit regarding their condition. The black is vibrant and the tender and steamer have perfect side lettering and numbers. Obviously, there is no rust nor oxidation on either the steamer nor tender.
This somewhat hard-to-find first year turbine has the smoke bulb and horizontal e-unit. This turbine has been completely cleaned, serviced, tested and the turbine runs so smooth and quiet, it's truly amazingly. The e-unit cycles properly, the headlight and smoke bulb works as designed and the tenders whistle is loud and strong. Lastly, the boiler front is an original part with an original 6200 decal.
Also included are original Art Deco boxes in poor condition. Their inserts are included as are original instructions, smoke pellets and tube of lubricant.
Please note: the front cow catcher has a chip on one side. This chip occurred at the Lionel factory as there is original black paint covering the chipped edge. There are several close-up photos of this area in the photos above.
