Description

Folks, here is one of the best New Haven F-3 sets that I have ever seen. These are pretty darn close to Like New condition but I will grade them as Excellent Plus to be conservative. You can judge for yourself by looking at the pictures. By looking at the wheels, they appear to almost never have been run but there is a very faint trace of rail marks on the wheels. The powered unit runs great and the horn even works. One very interesting observation about the B-unit is that on one set of metal steps, there is a rivet missing that holds one side on and it appears that this rivet was never installed by the factory as there are no marks on the metal where a rivet was ever pressed on or a rivet was removed.

The original boxes are not quite as nice but they must have done their job over the years protecting their contents. The "P" box is solid but it was opened along the long edge instead of on the end. The "C" box has the corrugated liner but it is missing the outside flap from one end. On the other end, one inner flap has torn off. Both units have the original sheet of Lionel wrapping paper but one of them is only a half sheet.

Also included are the original instruction sheet in new condition and a tube of Lionel lubricant.

Folks, you can't get much better than this for a highly collectible and harder to find postwar F-3 set!
