United Scale Models Brass Sante Fe AT&SF Hudson 4-6-4 Locomotive and Tender - HO Scale, HO

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$249   

Beautiful United Scale Models of Japan all-brass locomotive and tender in exceptional 'near mint', factory fresh condition. Please note that it is in the wrong box; the train is a Hudson but the box says Berkshire. The factory paint and lettering on the locomotive is in mint condition. There are no missing or loose parts and no visible wear on the upper side. The underside is as clean as the top. It looks as if the engine was never run or only run for testing. The lettering on the tender is mint and the paint is 'near mint+++'. The only flaws are two very tiny paint chips on the aft hand rail. They could easily be touched up by hand. Both models are not even dusty because they were always stored in the plastic bags, then wrapped and placed inside the original boxes. This model must be shipped insured. Please note that 3463 still survives to this day and is one of two remaining AT&SF 4-6-4 Hudsons.

Athearn MKT 50 Foot Auto Box Car - Metal HO Craftsman Kit, 1/87

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$42   

In the 1930s and especially during the 40s/early 50s there was a revolution in model railroading: high quality kits became available for the first time. Before this, there were few standard gauges and most railroads were scratch built to any gauge the collector desired. This kit is a classic Athearn model from that era. These kits build very realistic models because parts that are metal on the real box car are metal in the kit; same for the wooden parts. All sides are factory painted and decorated the correct colors, leaving very little painting. Includes wooden floor, metal roof and car ends as well as opening doors, metal underside and detail fittings such as AB brake set, brake wheel, etc. These make great stand alone models or high-quality rolling stock for your line. The kit has not been started. All small parts are still in factory sealed bags and all other parts have been inventoried complete with the car sides in as new condition.
