Center-cab enameled metal electric loco on 8 frame, made about 1930, has near-mint finish, never cleaned, all original patina. I counted 2 tiny edge nicks, minor box rubs roof edges, minor dirt on top. Even the frame has near-perfect finish, I noted one small edge nick.It has all original wheels and wiring, 2 wheels show fatigue/cracking, so mechanism will not turn. Couplers have light corrosion spots, cast headlight is original, minor tarnish spots on brass trim. It sits fine on track, for display, but would need new wheels if you want to run it. As is, not tested, not running.
You may never find one more-original and with better paint finish, but not running because of original wheels. (new-old-stock), are graded and represented as vintage collectibles.
Operational ability and characteristics or completeness of vintage motors, mechanisms, wiring, bulbs etc are not guaranteed. We do not guarantee coupler operation. We try to note any obvious missing parts, defects or restorations in the description. Results are from simple bench-testing to help determine if mechanism is intact.
