Aster New York Central Commodore Vanderbilt Streamlined 4-6-4 Steam Engine and Tender One Gauge Production #19 of Only 135 Units from 1984 Damaged to Front - Please read below This beautiful engine has some damage to the front, as pictured. You will notice the front coupler door hatch has broke off and the front of the engine is damaged bent down a little. I think this engine moved in the box and caused the damage seen in the photos.
The front of the engine needs some adjustment and the front coupler door and latch need to be fixed. Even with the issues listed above, I still feel this is an incredible model. This was produced in a limited run of only 135 units.I think this model spent most of it's life behind glass. It doesn't appear to have much, if any, track time. The model is very clean. In-fact, look at the awesome cab details and you will notice the protective clear wrapper is still on the builders plate.
This model is an electric, DC version and I tested it and it went great. The damage to the front didn't get caught on the track and this huge train went really smooth down the track and back. Unfortunately I don't have the manual for this train, but do have a copy of the original advertisement and will include a copy with the sale. Let me know if you have any questions.
