It is brand new, but because it came from a set there is no original box. The set (including this car) was a one time issue in 2003 only, and was quite limited. Construction is all metal with plastic couplers. The length of the car body is 16 inches (18 inches over the couplers), and it weighs almost 3-1/2 pounds.The car also comes with a battery powered sound module that attaches to a spring mount inside the car. It says "Merry Christmas" and then sings a few notes of "Jingle Bells". I put fresh batteries in it just to hear if it works.
