INTERESTING GRAY BODY MOLD,
THIN WHITE FACTORY PAINT
You are looking at one of the true classics-- an uncatalogued and desirable train set from 1975-76 WITH A NEAT VARIATION. It was Lionel's 027 answer to an American Freedom Train. If you collect Bicentennial trains, patriotic trains, or just crisp Lionel, here is something you gotta have.
The engine features forward, reverse, and light. The directions are manual using the e-unit lever. The boxcars have knuckle couplers, plastic trucks and metal wheels and axles.
THIS ONE IS A NEAT VARIATION: The FA-2 locomotive is white painted over a GRAY body shell which gives the white a grayish hue, versus the other version where the white is very strong.

CONDITION: Set looks like new with some small signs of use as detailed here and pictured below. To be very picky, THE ENGINE is C-7 instead of C-8 due to: There are a few small paint rubs on the top and sides. One wheel shows some residue, perhaps from a rubber band; some of the usual metal base side scratches as pictured (probably factory); Small glue smear on side and front; decal is starting to lift a little; light painr rub on nose. Engine has been tested and runs smoothly.
THE CARS all look crisp. 9760 has some melted rubber band residue on the end with the brakewheel, light rubs, and a factory paint drop on the top end.
BOXCARS 9759 and 9761: Has light rubs but C-8+.
CABOOSE has slightly bent platform ends/steps.
TRANSFORMER case is super clean. The handle is detached, but we will supply an extra blue transformer for you upon request. Has a few factory mold marks.
TRACK has rubber band residue.
SET BOX has minor wear as pictured, bit pverall looks nice.
