model name / number: 1467W

Entire set in original outer box with price tag. Inside all trains are in original boxes, includes transformer, tracks, and all printed material. My father bought these for me when I was 1 or 2. I remember them being used at Christmastime set up around the bottom of the tree maybe a few years. They always scared me when I was little. Those big heavy fierce looking engines with slit lighted eyes coming right at you and the loud horn to someone 1 or 2 years old. The cars are big in proportion to the child's size. I haven't seen these (taken them out of the box for 35 years or so) and when I took them out now to sell them, they are still scary. You will need to replace the cord to the transformer. It is very brittle and cracked. It has been replaced and the original is included. See pics. No one has used these since maybe 1955 or 1957. So enjoy them. And post pics of them running and the honk the horn for me. Remote track cord has been replaced temporarily to test the set. The original was cracked and brittle. It is included. All 3 original light bulbs work. Horn does too. Set was set up and running. I set up a Facebook account just for these. It has much better quality videos and stills of everything in better light. Use Craigslist to reply ONLY. Too many scammers. If interested I will send you a link to the Facebook address. And my phone and address for you to come by and see it. FYI I have spent at least 30 hours meticulously cleaning with qtips, etc, testing and replacing meticulously documenting this set. PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE PACKING UP AND PERMANENTLY LEAVING TEXAS. THIS MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE TO SEE SHORTLY. IF IT'S PACKED YOU ARE TOO LATE. IT'S GOING WITH US. THANKS $1,000 is a fair price for this.
