Lionel Prewar Standard Gauge Blue Comet 400E and matching cars with boxes
This could also make a really good fund raiser for a club raffle. Check out my Feedback on sales of postwar collectibles, including. I take care to describe every item in detail no matter the price range. Many of the Feedback's I've received state better than expected. No York TCA or limited local shows, no problem. I received a note from a gentlemen that this is a first year set, 1931. And that the frame that are commonly subject to warping and pot metal rot has held up well over the years.
The engine box has the insert and most all flaps and it is labeled correctly. Tender box has most flaps and is labeled correctly. One car box has most flaps and it is labeled correctly for the 420 car. There are two boxes labeled 421-55, making one correct and the other one mislabeled.One of them is missing all the flaps on one end and that end is very rough. It has essentially performed well as a sleeve to protect the car as you can tell from the photo's of the cars. Want more pics of anything I can attach them to the response. That were members of the TCA. I have not run it for obvious reasons. This is out of my own 50 plus year lifetime collection.
