HO Scale Brass Model Train from Key Imports - Built by Samhongsa

New York Central 4-8-2 Class L-3a Mohawk Steam Locomotive & Coal Tender

  • This model gets an "Excellent" grade from us as it shows some light signs of use.
  • We track-tested it and it runs OK, with some very minor sporadic hesitation. This isn't totally atypical for these models; the early runs of these were definitely inferior to Key's later versions. It has a can motor that is moderately noisy. On a scale of 1-10, the noise level would be a 5, with 1 being very quiet and 10 being loud.
  • The model is unpainted. There is some tarnish on it. Please be sure to check out the photos to see the level of detail on the model.
  • There is some nice in-cab detail that has been installed.
  • Disclaimer: We believe based on prior photos that this is the correct tender for this model. That being said, we know that the previous owner had several of these and liked to swap his tenders around. Please be sure to take a look to make sure that you are happy with what is included.
  • There are several solder marks on the model, the loco in particular. Please be sure to check out the photos.
  • No window glazing has been installed.
  • There are no lights installed.
  • The parts bag and elephant ears are included.
  • The original box and foam are included and in pretty good shape. The box shows some wear that is pretty typical for a box this old.
