This caboose is specific to this set. Only made in 58/59 , these have become hard to find in very good condition. This one is not perfect , some paint loss at the high spots , but would still rate as very good condition.
The AAR trucks are in excellent condition. There is some minor surface rust on the metal bar that operates the couplers. There are no broken or chipped steps.
I have tried to give a complete honest assessment of the condition of this set. This set would make a very nice addition to anyones collection. The item "LIONEL- O27 NO.
