A Set of Three NEW YORK CENTRAL Standard Gauge Cars in the larger size.
Here is a really neat early standard gauge set of three passenger cars. These are three of the larger sized passenger cars in 18" standard gauge. These Mojave versions probably came with the Mojave 402 electric outline engine. The cars are original Lionel. The Observation has a repainted roof.
418 Pullman Coach "Parlor Car"
- Oxidation and rust on trucks; decent lettering; oxidation and wear on car; oiling instruction label underneath; scratches and paint chips.
419 Pullman Coach Combine Parlor/Baggage
- Lettering is here and legible, but worn in places; Scratches and wear on car; wheels and trucks show rust and oxidation.
- Overall, nicest car in the lot; Sides are original; roof is repainted and has a few paint chips. Sides are nice with original printing looking good though light in places and a little rubbed smeared in middle of one "observation"; trucks and wheels are nicer than the other cars.

CONDITION: Observation car is C-6+, nicer than the other two which are more like C-5. Still, wanted to sell as a set. Two cars appear all original. Observation car has a repainted roof which is slightly darker than the other cars. The repainted roof has some chips, etc. The Observation car has nice sides and good printing. As you can see, printing on most is rough in areas. Lots of scratches and wear. Trucks show serious oxidation and surface rust. Lights DO work on all cars, but the wheels and roller pickups will need cleaning to ensure consistent lighting. Interiors appear to be intact. Couplers and steps, etc. are here. The platform on the rear of the observation may be reproduction.
