It is in excellent condition overall, it sits in the original foam, each piece is wrapped in United Plastic to protect the parts, and there is a separate piping that needs to be attached to the engine. I do not know if it is a detail part that fell off or is it a detail part that needs to be put in it’s proper place. Japanese brass engines, especially geared ones are getting harder and harder to find. This one is heads and shoulders about the Bachmann Shay engines for looks, detail, and running ability. Please note the one shaft is not attached from the third truck to the last truck on the engine because the two parts are stored separately in the original foam by design. All you have to do is aline the shaft with the connector and the motor will turn all the shafts on that one side. If you are into West Coast Logging then this is definitely an engine you want to add to your roster. Original foam is in great shape as well. We sell in the United States only at this time.
