T&P Drumhead on Observation
CONDITION: C8. Cars looks great. Some roofs have a little bit of wear on them--maybe from factory molds, maybe from boxes or maybe from display. All pictured. Rollers on most look like new to new. The cars have probably been on display. Boxes all look P8. With original set carton as well.
Just tested all. All light as they should. The observation drumhead tail does light up, but the little bulb is not enough to totally light up the whole drumhead. The rear graphic is a neat tint (factory) where it looks like the lamps are low there (all the rest are normal). The same for the diner--the strips with the silhouettes have a tint to them to make it looks like dimmed lighting even though the bulbs are the same ones in all the cars. Pretty neat.
If you have never had this series before, they are neat, and a lot easier to get into (than Lionel) if you need to change a bulb.I believe there are four screws on the bottom t open the car.
Of course, as you probably know, you'll keep optimal lighting with clean track, clean wheels, and clean rollers. But that is for your maintenance department!
