Minicraft 1804 Trevithick The World's First Steam Locomotive, 1/38, 11102

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$49   

From ex-Entex molds. The world's first locomotive was the 1804 Trevithick. On February 13 of that year, Richard Trevithick's high pressure steam locomotive pulled five wagons carrying 10 tons of iron and 70 men on the Penydaren Tramroad from Methyr to Abercynon, Wales. The nine miles was covered in four hours and five minutes but much time was lost cutting down several trees and removing some large rocks. At times they reached the unheard of speed of five miles per hour! The performance won a 500 Pound wager for the train's owner, Mr. Samuel Homfrey and proved for once and for all that smooth steel wheels could obtain traction on a smooth iron rail. Until this day, conventional wisdom insisted that only geared wheels running on geared track would be able to pull any load up the slightest grade. The model is from 1996 but the molds pre-date that. Older but very nice kit that is well detailed and molded in wood brown, medium gray and black. Includes display stand. The kit has never been started. The plastic parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags; the metal parts have been inventoried and NOTE: missing one round shaft. Easily made from round stock. Includes instructions.

E&B Valley Railroad Co D&RGW Stock Car With Trucks HOn3 Narrow Gauge, 1/87, 3100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$26   

Superb injection molded kit with plastic truck set. Very finely detailed with a high parts count for such a small model. While model aircraft mold makers and molding machine operators were most claiming that you could not mold parts this fine, several model train companies, like E&B Valley, were busy proving them wrong. This is kit for the serious model railroader who demands prototype fidelity. Molded in black plastic. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. Please note that these E&B kits did not come with decals.

Balboa Rio Grande Southern (RGS) Galloping Goose Three Truck Freight Brass Locomotive HOn3 Narrow Gauge, 1/87

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$175   

Beautiful, like-new condition brass narrow gauge locomotive, hand-built in Japan by the renown Balboa Scale models. It is still wrapped in the original plastic and all three pieces of the factory foam are intact and in 'excellent+' condition. This model has always been carefully stored in the original box. There is the slightest bit of wheel wear at 14x magnification, so it appears it was test run at one point - probably at Balboa. I see no broken parts and no modifications; it looks factory-new. Also includes the correct fold-out blue Balboa instruction sheet and factory sealed Balboa/Champ decals for the RGS Galloping Goose. The box top and tray are complete but both have wear and stains, so they grade low. I have no narrow gauge track, so I am unable to test the locomotive, so it is sold "As Is."

West Side Model Co No. 3 Heisler Brass Locomotive HOn3 Narrow Gauge, 1/87

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

$295   

In rare, investment-grade condition inside and out, please read carefully. Beautiful, like-new condition brass narrow gauge locomotive, hand-built in Japan for West Side Models by the renown Nakamura Seimisu K.K. The original box is in amazing 'near mint+' condition and the model is still wrapped in the original plastic and all three pieces of the factory foam are intact and in 'good' condition. This one-owner model has always been carefully stored in the original box. Under 14x magnification I cannot see but the slightest wear on the wheels, so I would grade it as 'never run' although it was probably test run at Nakamura before shipping. I see no broken parts and no modifications; it looks factory-new. I have no narrow gauge track, so I am unable to test the locomotive, so it is sold "As Is." There is no paperwork present. Must be shipped insured.

West Side Model Co Brass HOn3 Class "A" Climax Horizontal Boiler Locomotive Nakamura Seimjitsu KK, 1/87

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$179   

Beautiful, like-new condition brass narrow gauge locomotive, hand-built in Japan by the renown Nakamura Seimisu K.K. (marketed in the USA as Westside Models). It is still wrapped in the original plastic and all three pieces of the factory foam are intact and in excellent condition. This one-owner model has always been carefully stored in the original box. There is the slightest bit of wheel wear at 14x magnification, so it appears it was test run at one point but nothing more. I see no broken parts and no modifications; it looks factory-new. However, most of these came with a small firebox cover for the inside of the cab; this one does not have one. I have no narrow gauge track, so I am unable to test the locomotive, so it is sold "As Is." There is no paperwork present.
